Do you identify yourself as a South Asian aged 16-25 and need a safe space to talk about life challenges?
South Asian adolescents and young adults experience a wide range of mental health challenges, yet unfortunately many suffer in silence due to the stigma and lack of understanding of their experience within our communities. Many are unable to have conversations with their families about mental health. This is what inspired us to create a space for sharing and learning in a support group.
This Mental Wellness Support Group offers a supportive, nonjudgmental, and confidential space for participants to discuss their experiences related to mental health, stigma, bi-cultural identity, life challenges, stress, and more. The group is run by two facilitators in their 20s and 30s.
Please note: This group does NOT provide psychotherapy.
The meetings will begin March 4, 2022.
Date and Time: Every Friday, 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM ET (1:30 PM – 2:30 PM PT)
Location: Zoom (after you register, we will send you a link to join the meetings)
