South Asian Mental Health
how we are changing our community’s soch
In Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi, SOCH (ਸੋਚ) means “to think” or “a thought”. As community mental health nurses, we truly believe that the way of combating the stigma towards mental health is to change the way our community “thinks” about mental health.
1. Start the mental health conversation to break the stigma in the South Asian community.
2. Empower the community with the skills to navigate the mental health system, support loved ones, and most importantly, take a preventative approach to caring for one’s overall mental wellbeing.
