Culturl Impact on Mental Health

Discussion Summary:

Our group discussed how culture plays a significant role in shaping our mental health experience. We discussed how our cultural norms and expectations can put a lot of pressure on us to conform to a way of life that may not be aligned with our truth. Group panelists shared about their personal experiences regarding how religion, cultural norms, beliefs, and generational traumas shaped who they are. We discussed the importance of being true to yourself, engaging in self-care, and having healthy boundaries with self and others. 


Food for Thought:

In what ways has your culture and upbringing influenced your mental health and the way you perceive yourself? How can you support yourself when your culture is negatively impacting your mental health? How can we work together to create a culture that is more nurturing of mental health needs and challenges?

Real Talk: Finding Purpose

REAL TALK: Finding Purpose

Discussion Summary:

Our group discussed how society and culture puts a lot of pressure on us to find our purpose in life. We discussed the tendency to perceive purpose as an objective rather than as deeper meaning in life, and how that impacts our confidence in achieving life fulfillment. Everyone shared about a time when they felt connected to life and themselves and how life purpose is an intangible, unachievable concept. That, maybe, there is no "purpose" in life, but rather an ongoing exploration for meaning by making choices to be true to ourselves and live in accordance with our values. We also discussed Ikigai, a Japanese concept about one's reason for being, and how that could be applied to each of our lives.


Food for Thought:

How are you creating meaning in your life? What values help guide your life decisions? Are you working so hard to find your life purpose, that you're missing out on the beauty that life currently has to offer you?

Real Talk: Societal Change January 19th, 2023

Real Talk: Societal Change Gallery

Discussion Summary:

Our group discussed how one of the hardest parts of societal change is agreeing on what we want to change and how we want to change it. We discussed how what may be perceived as positive change for one group of people, may not be perceived as positive to another group of people. We discussed how it's important to recognize and accept our differences rather than trying to change everyone to be the same as us. We agreed that change begins with each individual person taking responsibility for their part in this world and helping to make the world a better place by spreading awareness, compassion, and kindness.


Food for Thought:

So, how are you helping to make a difference in this world? How are you showing grace, humility and understanding to diverse others? What can you do to give back?
