About this Event
SOCH Mental Health presents – Positive Coming Out Experiences. The focus of this workshop is to promote supportive and positive coming out experiences within the South Asian LGBTQ+ community!
Striving to have a healthy community conversation surrounding stigma of mental health and social issues in the South Asian LGBTQ+ community in a safe and non judgmental environment. To also facilitate an open dialogue and pull back the curtain on the stigma surrounding mental health.
In this workshop we will have guest facilitators sharing their experiences followed by a community dialogue.
SOCH is a mental health initiative started by two registered nurses, Jasmeet Chagger and Maneet Chahal from Brampton, tailored at providing the South Asian community with education, awareness, and resiliency for mental health. As a community initiative, SOCH’s aim is to first ‘start the mental health conversation’ to break the stigma in the South Asian community and second, to empower the community with the skills and knowledge to navigate the mental health system, support loved ones, and most importantly, take a preventative approach to caring for one’s overall well being.
Zoom meeting information will be mailed out to all participants before the event.
