“But What Will People Say?” Breaking cultural stereotypes surrounding mental health conversations

Do you know the cultural differences that can exist being immigrant parents and the mental health issues that are unique? Whether you come from an immigrant household or not, this episode is a must to really dive into the cultural stereotypes that exist surrounding mental health and, subsequently, how we show up for our children. I welcome Sahaj Kaur Kohli who is the founder of Brown Girl Therapy (@browngirltherapy), the first and largest mental health and wellness community organization for adult children of immigrants, a licensed therapist, and author of the Book, But What Will People Say: Navigating mental health, identity, love, and family between cultures.

She joins me to discuss:

  • The difference between collectivist and individualistic cultures and why the distinction is important
  • Why diversity in mental health and parenting resources is important
  • What struggles immigrant parents have that may be unique
