Mental Health

Navigating mental health as children of immigrants can be challenging, coming from communities who may not believe in getting support for it and parents who were often too busy surviving to focus on their own wellbeing. In this episode, host Karina Zapata speaks with Clara Jaide from Calgary, Alberta, Shanice Coombs from Brantford, Ontario, and Alonso Melgar from Toronto, Ontario. Each guest has faced various challenges with their mental health in their lives, from facing racial violence, to not being allowed to attend therapy growing up.
