STORIES OF STIGMA: SOUTH ASIAN MENTAL HEALTH
Special Guest Shanta Kanukollu
One of the strains on mental health in the South Asian community is the pressure of being a “model minority”. How does that perception affect our understanding and desire to share experience of trauma? In this episode, we talk to Shanta Kanukollu, a licensed clinical psychologist, about her thoughts on gender-based violence and the associated trauma in the South Asian community. Shanta has also just started her own private practice in Chicago, so we’ll hear about how she became interested in mental health and how she thinks we can tackle stigma.
We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and #SpeakUp!
