------------------

Many people of Asian Indian descent living in the United States do not seek help from mental health professionals when needed. Stigma, sociocultural factors, lack of awareness of resources and other barriers may contribute to reluctance among this population in the use of mental health services. Therefore, there is a need for understanding among service providers of the cultural practices, belief systems, and attitudes of Asian Indians, and how they impact on mental health. It is necessary that culturally sensitive practice must encompass assessment and evaluation as well as treatment.

 

This symposium will focus on varied critical issues like stigma associated with mental health, elderly care, family conflicts, substance use, suicide and its impact on survivors, importance of family members and community organizations, community resources, and role of primary care treatment in mental health care. The program will also recognize community leaders for their work.
