Heart to Heart: Family Conversations About Mental Health

Bringing up mental health issues with family and loved ones can be hard, especially because societal stigma discourages such conversations. Many young Asian and Pacific Islander people experience this firsthand in their households and communities, where cultural, linguistic, and generational factors present additional barriers to bringing up the ‘taboo’ topic of mental illness. Varun Joshi will facilitate a conversation between filmmakers Thea Loo and Varundeep Chawla exploring the unique considerations of discussing mental health in AAPI families while offering insights into how we can approach these difficult, but necessary, conversations.
