Support

You may have been told by your family ‘Don’t cry, you’re meant to be strong’.

You may have been told ‘We don’t talk about this outside of this house’.

You may have been told nothing, because there are certain taboos you don’t even discuss inside the house.

It is time to break the cycle of bottling up our emotions and allow ourselves to heal.

Healing might be therapy, or reaching out to a local organisation. It might even be finding a more appropriate way of expressing your emotions. Whatever it may be, we’ve compiled south Asian support that is available out there for you.
