Community Speaks: Frames of Mind
Join us this May as we mark Mental Health Awareness Month with our special event, Community Speaks: Frames of Mind. This powerful gathering brings together individuals from the South Asian community who will courageously share their deeply personal and cathartic stories about mental health.
In an evening of raw emotions and profound insights, our speakers will take you on a journey through their unique experiences, shedding light on the often-overlooked mental health challenges faced by South Asians. By breaking the barriers of stigma and silence, they will create a space for empathy, understanding, and open dialogue.
Be a part of this transformative event as we celebrate the resilience and strength of our community members. Together, we will foster an environment of healing, support, and unity that uplifts and empowers us all. Let’s embrace the importance of mental health and work towards a future where everyone’s well-being is valued and nurtured.
Community Speaks was originally imagined as a forum for South Asians impacted by violence to break the isolation they have experienced by sharing their story. Each year the Community Speaks narratives shed light on the special challenges and opportunities experienced within the South Asian socio-cultural context, whether in native lands or in adopted homelands.
