SOCH’s September Mental Health Community Conversation
September 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
It’s time to talk about men’s mental health on September 17th, 2020. It is time to breakdown the stigma and encourage men to seek help.
On September 17th, 2020, we are going to bring together men to share their experiences and discuss their point of views on Modern Masculinity for 2020 and beyond.
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 caring 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 effects everyone and knows no boundaries, we should all be comfortable seeking help when needed.
