Consultation with Minister Judy Darcy

It was a pleasure to attend the South Asian Community consultation on July 17th with Minister for Mental Health & Addictions, Judy Darcy. The Ministry invited SAMHAA founder Kulpreet Singh and former SAMHAA chair of the board of directors, Sukhdeep Jassar, currently at Fraser Health, as well as various community front-line professionals to the consultation at Surrey Public Library. We look forward to reviewing the report and subsequent plans from the Ministry on bringing much needed improvements and reinforcements to mental health care in BC, and appreciate the opportunity to provide our input in the process.

It was a pleasure to present a workshop at the Surrey Teachers Association 2018 Convention on May 4th. Along with Tasha Nijjar, Bhupinder Mattoo, and Radhika Khosla, SAMHAA’s Kulpreet Singh hosted a workshop on South Asian mental health, which featured discussions on clinical understanding of mental health, cultural context, toxic masculinity, and intergenerational trauma. Thank you to all of the teachers who attended!
