Hello

Welcome to PEACE

Join us as we embark on a journey of purpose and impact. Together, we will celebrate the start of a movement dedicated to mental health in the AAPI Community.


In 2013, Dr. Kim founded R.I.C.E. (Research Institute of Counseling and Education LLC) to provide mental health services to the surrounding community. Over the years, R.I.C.E. has evolved into a trusted resource for Asian Americans seeking mental health support in their community. Dr. Kim has been successful in offering resources by handling pro bono cases and implementing sliding scale for fee.

 

Despite the growing demand for mental health services among this demographic, culturally competent resources were in short supply. This need was even more pronounced during the pandemic. P.E.A.C.E. emerged from the dedicated efforts of working with AAPI communities in GA, embarking on a journey to offer as many resources as possible for those who may be falling through the cracks. P.E.A.C.E. stands for People's Empowerment through Advocacy, Counseling, and Education. We firmly believe that these pillars are essential for driving change.

STORY

MISSION
