Brain Injury and Mental Health Information Sessions for the South Asian Community

Break the Silence - Solutions through Discussions

Fraser Valley Brain Association (FVBIA) will be offering a number of fun, free virtual events in 2022 to provide the most current information on brain injury adjustment and mental health issues.

Sessions for the South Asian Community will take place on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM starting April 9, 2022. You can attend as many sessions as you like. Please note that there are no sessions during the months of July and August.

These Saturday morning virtual sessions are geared to the South Asian Community, and will be hosted on Zoom by Jagdeep Hayre from Connect 2 Your Soul, along with others in the South Asian community.

Jagdeep is a holistic coach and wears many hats in a number of organizations related to Mental Health. She has supported children and families since 2001 and also works with the youth in many of her roles. Jagdeep has a diverse background supporting children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities, mental health and addictions issues.

One word. One meaning.

In Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi, SOCH means “to think” or “a thought”. As members of the South Asian Community we do believe that the way of combating the stigma towards mental health is to change the way our community “thinks” about mental health. So let's talk!

The first step towards understanding brain injury and increasing mental health awareness is to create a safe space to talk openly. Many studies have shown that South Asian immigrants in Canada experience mental health disorders sometimes higher than their peers. Some of the reasons include intergenerational conflict or stress of adapting into western society.

Come join us to talk about brain injury and mental health and how they both affect our lives. We can do this together. You don't have to do it alone.
