About us


Integrated Care Coordinators (ICC) Project  / Korean Community Service


Prevent or reduce trauma, anxiety, and depression among urban immigrants of Korean and Vietnamese ethnicities by decreasing self and social mental health stigma, strengthening cultural/spiritual/community protective factors, and increasing access/utilization of mental health services. 

Approach to program

Information and Referral; Linkages and Follow-Up; and Ongoing Integrated Care.  Throughout the implementation of these components, the ICC project will infuse CDEP core values/cultural elements: 1) “no wrong door” approach to needs assessment and linkages to services, 2) “whatever it takes” as far as types of assistance provided to assist clients to access services, 3) “warm hand-off” to qualified providers to prevent falling through the cracks, and 4) “noon-chi” or culturally-grounded relational focus as far as emotional support, checking in cultural and linguistic sensitivity.
