About this Event
On January 28th, 2021, we are going to bring together men, women, and the community to share their experiences and discuss their points of view on Addiction.
The goal is to make a positive change, to have a healthy community conversation surround what is means to be a male in today’s day and age. Our goal is to facilitate an open dialogue to pull back the curtain on the stigma surrounding mental health.
SOCH is a mental health promotion initiative started by two registered nurses 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 care for one’s overall well being.
We as South Asian males should be encouraged to learn more about the symptoms and signs of mental health problems and for men to have the opportunity to share about their lives. Mental illness affects everyone and knows no boundaries, we should all be comfortable seeking help when needed.
Please note, this event is open to everyone.
