SEWA-AIFW’s Health Initiative Programs focus on meeting the health needs of the community.
Mental Health Awareness
The South Asian community is surrounded by a stigma regarding our mental health, and regardless of our backgrounds/successes/education, can suffer from depression and other issues. Don’t suffer in silence – reach out for help and get a referral to one of our culturally sensitive counselors. If you’d like to take advantage of our free mental health consults, please email us!
