Anonymous asked: well i was specifically thinking of east asia, but come to think of it, i don't know how south asian cultures respond to mental health either. :P
Excellent. Well, I will make sure to research and compile some posts next week. Most importantly, I don’t want to speak on anybody’s behalf: if you are reading this and from or living in Asia, or perhaps now residing in the West, or from a family of Asian heritage: what have your experiences of mental health / care been? Have the conceptions of your culture clashed with those of Western culture? Do please let me know: I’d love to feature your experiences on the blog - anonymously if you wish, Thanks!
