In today’s podcast, I’m speaking to the Founder and Organiser of Sikh Forgiveness, Sandy Kaur about Mental Health Ki Hundai Hai, her motivation in putting this guide together, what it means for people who have asked for Mental Health assistance, and the aims of Sikh Forgiveness to get this guide out to every Gurdwara in the UK at least.
Mental Health Ki Hundi Hai is a guide and an understanding of clinically diagnosed mental health disorders.
Its for the everyday person and for professionals to get real about mental health. ⠀
The narrative for mental health can change when we eliminate the fear of the words. Very often mental health is dulled down, misinterpreted, or judged. Now we want to make it a normalised conversation. It is not a taboo or a stigma, it is our health.⠀
Being able to communicate these truths in translation is to break down those languages’ barriers far too many have experienced. ⠀
This book contains various mental health conditions with English and Punjabi translations, to support everyone to understand what mental health is.
There are three versions of the book (an eBook, a black and white version and a full colour version) and you can find them on Amazon.
