Mental health is still an unaddressed issue in Asian American families but there are serious attempts to make the public more aware of it. The works studied in Asianfail contribute to the growing awareness of our need to re-examine the "good life" -- its high cost and viability in the twenty-first century. Many Asian Americans and Asian Canadians have become involved in work for non-profit, for global environmental causes, with other groups, such as African Americans and First Nation Canadians. Their failure to conform to the model minority myth leads to new and unexpected ways of finding peace and contentment, or an unexplored career path.
