Saahas for Cause implemented their wellness project for South Asian immigrants in the months of April, May and June. Focus groups and discussions were held on immigration, trauma, mental health issues, remedies, therapies and resources in the community.
The purpose of this project was to reach out to the community to build community connections and reduce the stigma of mental health related issues. Saahas for Cause held discussions at beauty salons, senior groups, apartment buildings, and churches.
Saahas gathered participants of all six sessions at Nanking restaurant to celebrate the achievement of community connectedness through this project
The visiting speakers took questions from the audience and there was a healthy discussion about the live scenarios and challenges of hybrid parenting.
The event saw a good turnout with young parents, recent immigrants, grandparents, and seniors from the South Asian community.
