South Asian Mental Health Alliance (SAMHAA) is a new non-profit community network engaging, educating and mobilizing the BC South Asian community around issues related to mental health.
SAMHAA’s mission is to create awareness, foster acceptance, provide links to support & resources, & empower all affected by mental illness. Our vision is a society where health/wellness of the mind, body & spirit are recognized equally, without stigma or stereotypes.
We hope to begin this action & awareness movement in the BC South Asian community and inspire other communities to also carry this torch and reduce the darkness of ignorance and stigma that causes many to struggle in silence, without support.
Please join us for a 90 minute public meeting to talk about:
1) What are the issues?
2) What are some solutions?
3) How is SAMHAA working on these solutions?
4) How can we work together for greater understanding and acceptance?
Date/Time: 6pm sharp, Sunday, May 22, 2011
Location: TBA (will be in Newton Area of Surrey, BC)
Refreshments & snacks will be served.
Time will be available after the meeting for networking & open discussion.
