SOCH and Autism Ontario presents “My Child’s Disability is Not My Fault” in Punjabi
Workshop Goal: Unlearning societal perceptions of disability.
This workshop will allow South Asian parents and caregivers of a child with autism to challenge cultural views on disability and reevaluate their perceptions of karma. Core themes of this workshop may include: exploring cultural and religious views on karma, societal perceptions of the gender-related “blame game” and strategies to unlearn societal perceptions of disability.
Maneet Chahal (RN, BScN, MSc) & Jasmeet Chagger (RN, BScN, MSc(c)) are two passionate community change-makers. They have over 8 years of mental health nursing experience and have closely witnessed their family and friends struggle with mental illness.
Along with working in the field of mental health, Maneet finished her Masters of Nursing in 2018 which looked at the South Asian Punjabi community’s experience of accessing mental health services for depression in the Region of Peel.
Jasmeet’s Masters of Science in Nursing thesis explores the perceptions of alcohol use and the experience of Punjabi families impacted by problem drinking.
