Mental Health and Critical Conversations

Managing Stress (June 2018), SFC & The Hume Center 

Help can be closer than we think. And we all need some from time to time. Yet, there may be barriers that feel insurmountable. SFC works to bring critical conversations and resources to the community. 

“You know, we say ਮੇਰੀਆਂ ਲੱਤਾਂ ਦਰਦ ਹੋ ਰਹੀਆਂ ਹਨ ਜਾਂ ਮੇਰਾ ਸਿਰ ਦੁਖਦਾ ਹੈ (my legs are hurting or I have a head ache) —, and we don’t realize that a lot of these can be caused by our mental health, or having difficulty…stress…anxiety.”

Helping Victims of Mass Violence and Terrorism: Recovery

 “Our community doesn’t respond to traditional forms of mental health or to therapy. We had to take healing into our own hands. The Sikh Healing Collective was truly a collective effort. Mental health professionals came together. They were south Asians, they were non-south Asians, they were Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus. They spoke the language, they understood the culture. They became integrated into the community here in Oak Creek, and people no longer saw them as strangers.” – Puni Kalra, Clinical Psychologist, Founder, Sikh Healing Collective. Read more

The following resources were created by numerous mental health professionals who came together to help the community and “created the psycho-educational materials according to the community’s needs week to week…So it was a way to introduce mental health in a softer, kinder way without the stigma attached to it”.
