Our aim is to increase awareness of mental health difficulties in the Punjabi and Sikh community.
For far too long mental health difficulties have been undetected for a number of reasons. Research indicates that this may be due to a lack of awareness and knowledge, the stigma associated with mental health difficulties as well as uncertainty about the services that are available. Mental and physical well-being go hand in hand.
We hope to improve the community’s understanding of a variety of mental health difficulties from depression to anxiety and dementia. Alongside this we hope to provide a better understanding of NHS, private and voluntary sector services (in your area) to better equip you should you require support currently or in the future.
With knowledge comes power!
To make fully informed decisions about yours or a loved one’s health you need to be equipped with information and this is what we hope to provide you here.
