Event Description

Through our work at PCHS, we have found that South Asians are underrepresented in mental health campaigns, not only in our own community, but with mainstream mental health providers as well. We think it is time to have an open and honest conversation about supporting and understanding the distinctive differences in culture to work together to create effective, and impactful mental health services as professionals. A thought that consistently resonated that speared this initiative is “we know cultures are unique and so are the challenges within them. Why are so many solutions the same?”.

As a result of this echoing question, we are proud to offer this important forum in support our campaign by attending our “SAY IT LIKE IT IS’ online forum on December 10, 2020.

This unique online event will take place from 1pm to 4pm with opportunities to network with your peers virtually, hear from experts in diverse service delivery, and consider insights from 4 incredible panelists who will discuss the nuances of mental health supports for South Asian’s in the mainstream of mental health services. We are excited to engage in a thought-provoking dialogue and to establish new solutions to help nourish the lives of those in our community.
