Guftagu #1: Mental Health within South Asian Communities

Welcome to Guftagu, which means ‘conversation’ in Urdu. Guftagu is a new Beaver Sound podcast in collaboration with LSE SU Pakistan Society, where we discuss issues related to South Asian social issues, culture, identity, and politics. Have a listen to the first episode on mental health in South Asian communities presented by Angbeen Abbas!

“What I do every day, and counselling in itself is deeply political because people bring in their everyday experiences. They talk about violence, structural inequalities, and other things that are very political.” – Fatima Hussain

On this episode, we talk with Fatima Hussain, an Islamabad-based psychotherapist, about the stigma around mental health, the barriers that exist in seeking help, and how we can start talking about it amongst our communities.
