Priscilla Lui quoted in Axios Seattle article on therapists of color

Priscilla Lui was quoted in an Axios Seattle article titled "Seattle has nation's third highest ratio of BIPOC therapists"

Priscilla Lui, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Washington, told Axios a key question for Seattle is whether the higher ratio of therapists of color means more people of color are receiving adequate mental health services.

"I am not sure we should really be patting ourselves on the back just yet given the racial gaps in representation and persistent mental health disparities," Lui said.
