Create life-changing habits and make life-long friends. 

A mental health membership program for Asian Australians.

- Begins April 1st 2022! -


We've helped hundreds of Asian Australians to improve their mental health.

And we can't wait to support you too!

Shapes and Sounds is the leading voice for Asian Australian mental health.

Learn about our unique approach and how The Shapes and Sounds Club can help you, from our founder, Asami.


Our programs make impact and change lives.


"I don't think I have seen anything else like this, where there is a forum dedicated specifically to investigating Asian Australian identity as well as mental health. Being able to spend time each day to reflect, respond and read other people's responses to prompts helped me to process my own line of thinking and feel connected to a community committed to wanting to know themselves better."


"Turns out, my mental wellbeing has got a lot to do with acceptance of who I am culturally. I feel alive because I was seen, heard and understood in the space that Asami and Vi-An had held for us. Thank you Shapes and Sounds for this creative, nurturing and mind-blowing experience!"

A. P.

"Shapes and Sounds has created a genuinely safe community for Asian Australians to explore identity, mental health and connect with others who have either gone through or are currently going through similar experiences. The program has equipped me with skills to take better care of my mental health. The peer support has been outstanding and there's a real sense of togetherness within the community."

What you'll learn in the Club.

How will this improve my mental health?


1. Self-reflection is an evidence-based strategy that improves emotional intelligence.

  • Our learning modules will help you strengthen your self-reflection skills so that you deeply understand your values, goals and interests. This forms the foundation for creating meaningful change in your life.

2. Social connection is a neurobiological human need.

  • The Club offers you connection to a thriving Asian Australian community that will allow you to feel safe and welcomed as your full, complex and multi-cultural identity.

3. Connecting culture and mental health just makes sense.

  • If you've felt like something's been missing in your mental health care, let us show you how connecting the dots between mental health and culture can help you to amplify your wellbeing.
