Why do BME communities find it so difficult to talk about mental health?Watch
Why do you feel as though BME communities find it so difficult about their mental health problems? 32% higher than the national average is incredibly high (the rate for anyone who is 'White British' is 6% lower), do you feel as though health professionals are quicker to diagnose those BME community with a mental health condition?
Some cultures just have **** views on mental health TBH. For example, me and my brother (who is shy but has no disabilities) went to visit our Chinese neighbours whose daughter is my friend, she told me later her parents laughed after we went and said he was autistic.
If, for example, your parents faced segregation when they first came over, how can you justify feeling depressed because a kid insulted you at school?
I think my dad still attributes my mental health problems to someone "charming" him (putting a curse on him via black magic) He only believed I was "stressed" in the first place, coz a "miracle" priest told him so
