Overcoming Stigma& Bridging the Gap

Research conducted over three decades on mental health has shown that Asian Americans exhibit some of the highest rates of depressive symptoms, with suicide being the fifth-leading cause of death among this population. Among women aged 15-24, Asian American females have the highest suicide rates among all racial and ethnic groups.
 

Despite these glaring statistics, Asian Americans often feel paralyzed by the stigma around mental health. Some factors that result in this stigma include familial expectations, economic disparities, historically religious beliefs, medical racism, cultural bigotry, community-think and more. Another major factor is the lack of South Asian representation in the mental health community. Not seeing oneself depicted in the therapeutic space serves as a barrier to overcoming this described stigma. At Boundless, we saw this lack of representation as an alarming concern and created a culturally-responsive practice.

Naming the South Asian Struggle 

A Binal Life

Immigrant children often live a dual existence, picking and choosing from two cultures, which can lead to feelings of isolation and a sense of not fully belonging to either. This cultural dilemma may cause young adults and teenagers to experience an identity crisis, asking questions like "Who am I?" "Where do I come from?" and "Who do I belong to?" The dissonance between how they are treated at home versus in society intensifies their confusion and frustration.

Why Should This Matter?

South Asian individuals are beautifully complex, with rich histories and unique lived experiences. They deserve care and support to navigate life’s storms. However, accessing help isn't always straightforward. Traditional psychotherapy is often rooted in the experiences of White Middle-Class Western families. Simply transferring these interventions to South Asian populations can be deeply damaging. It is vital to have culturally sensitive therapy that acknowledges and respects these profound differences, ensuring effective and compassionate care.
