Many young Asian and Pacific Islander people experience this firsthand in their households and communities, where cultural, linguistic, and generational factors present additional barriers to bringing up the ‘taboo’ topic of mental illness. Varun Joshi will facilitate a conversation between filmmakers Thea Loo and Varundeep Chawla exploring the unique considerations of discussing mental health in AAPI families while offering insights into how we can approach these difficult, but necessary, conversations.</p><p>This event is free and open to the public. This session is a part of the Our Stories, Our Voices 2022 festival.
