Safe Space Community for Asians (SSC) is a free online ministry that seeks to equip the body of Christ with basic mental health literacy from the medical, psychological, spiritual, and relational perspectives by integrating psychology and theology from an Asian mindset.

By following and communing with us, you will acquire the counseling knowledge and skills for better self-care and ministry to others when you understand the human nature better.

Our ethos:

We have monthly teaching videos, related case-study blogs, pro-bono counseling sessions, and monthly conversations by Zoom for sharing and consultations on any mental health topic. It is free and joining our discussions is optional.


Let us come together as an accepting community to hear each other’s stories without judgment, celebrate our uniqueness, and release hope in our lives. At the same time, we will collectively learn how to cope with our daily struggles and pains, as well as how best to care and support others who are hurting.

To foster a safe space for communal harmony, every participant is required to go through the blogs on Expectations and Etiquette  (click here to read text) and Shame, Interdependence, and Vulnerability (click here to read text).
