Established in 2011, Chinese American Sunshine House(CSH) is a non-profit organization that provides a culturally-sensitive environment for the Brooklyn Chinese community by empowering those battling with mental illness through their personal recovery and educating the community about mental health. Its mission is to provide an environment which promotes education of mental illness to combat stigmas and to improve accessibility to available treatment.
