    Yeah, very taboo. I know in some cultures mental health issues are kept on the down-low because of this but I never realised the Somali culture did too. I was having a discussion about it with some Somali friends & I later asked my mum what she thought of it. Shocked to find out that its really taboo in our culture. My mum told me a few stories/examples she knows of people whose children suffered bipolar/other disorders and instead of seeking help they just swept it under the carpet for fear of exposure. No medical treatment, just quran saar basically (praying over it).

    Also, some parents/the older generation believe that if someone has mental health issues, they won't get married. No one will marry them or their siblings (you know how somali ppl know everything and everyone, word gets around). Shocking, right? Never knew that. Again, not everyone thinks like that in the older generation/our generation, but I never knew that some somali people have that mentality. I know its like that in Nigeria too.

    Yeah I've noticed this too. My mum was telling me about various Somali women who run away with their children to Africa after being told by the school that their kid is autistic or things like that. A lot of the time, I don't even think they acknowledge it and even if they do, they kind of ignore it.
