So in our never ending quest to open up conversations within the south asian community, no issue is more important, no actually urgent to discuss than mental health. With mental health issues on the rise, the day of sweeping things under the rug needs to come to an end. Which is why I was so excited when Faria Akram reached out. I knew I had to have her on the deep beauty podcast!
Faria writes for both Brown Girl Magazine and for MannMukti.org which if you guys are going through any mental health issues, you need to know about this website. It’s dedicated to helping people in our community share their stories and lean on each other for support. So incredibly important!!
Give the interview a listen, it’s full of insight into why we as south asians consider the topic of mental health so taboo and some great tips to help anyone going through these issues. To reach out to the people at MannMukti you can message them at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow Faria on Instagram and Twitter at @followingfaria.
