South Asian Mental Health and Wellness Community Forum

Key Concept

Mental Health Promotion, as defined by the World Health Organization, “involves actions to create living conditions and environments that support mental health and allow people to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles.”  Embedded in this concept of mental health promotion is the need to raise awareness about mental health.  Along with raising awareness of signs and symptoms of different mental illnesses, it is important to provide knowledge of how to access treatment, treatment options, preventive skills and techniques that people can engage in to prevent relapse.  This all-encompassing definition of mental health promotion has guided the development of the conference this year.  

Forum Goal

Empowering those who have experienced mental illness, while educating the South Asian public about signs, symptoms, and treatment options, as well as preventative skills, techniques, and services.
