STORIES OF STIGMA: SOUTH ASIAN MENTAL HEALTH
Special Guest Kimberlee Parmer
Sexual assault and abuse is a silent epidemic that affects every race, religion, or socioeconomic status. While it is a subject enveloped in silence and shame in any community, multicultural communities often have unique forms of stigma that make it very difficult for survivors to heal. Survivors often suffer from Depression, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, eating disorders, and other mental illnesses. In this episode, we discuss this issue with Kimberlee Parmer, who is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern at the Brazos Valley Sexual Assault Resource Center. In addition to talking about sexual violence, we will be covering how to help loved ones in crisis.
We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and #SpeakUp!
