Session Details

Language shapes how we see the world. The words we choose and the meanings we attach to them influence our feelings, attitudes and beliefs. Our language choices have a powerful effect on how we view mental health and people living with mental health conditions. In this session, Charvi Gangwani, an Indian mental health advocate shares how you can contribute in creating multilingual resources for adolescents whose first language is not English to make information on mental health more inclusive for people with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. The session will highlight the potential of virtual communities in bringing more diverse sets of voices to participate in the virtual working of strengthening advocacy efforts.
