Chinese-American Sunshine House

About Us

Established in 2011, Chinese American Sunshine House is a non-profit organization that provides a culturally-sensitive environment for the  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. The focus of the organization is placed on normalizing the emotional state of clients and families, while providing education through workshops and trainings, and linkages to additional resources in NYC.


Dr. Xu Z. Chen is the founder and devoted Chairperson of the non-profit organization, Chinese-American Sunshine House. With almost twenty years of experience providing psychiatric services, she has extensive clinical experience working in inpatient care and outpatient care and has been providing culturally-sensitive care to the new immigrants’ population for the Brooklyn community. Very much involved in charity work, she has been volunteering her time to speak at lectures and mental health workshops by bringing awareness of mental illness with the goal of improving family relationships. Dr. Chen speaks fluent Chinese and English and is a Board Certified Psychiatrist and Diplomate to the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
