Mental Health in Communities Experiencing Stigma



The other day, I heard the following program on NPR: https://www.npr.org/2019/09/02/755564513/common-takes-time-to-heal-on-let-love


Common's openness in this interview is astounding. He hits the nail on the head with what therapy can do for individuals, as well as for couples and families. South Asian communities share with Black communities the stigma against seeking help in mental wellness -- with leaders like Common lessening that stigma, one can only hope that more people will feel comfortable accessing support from which they can benefit.
