I am so excited to share this conversation with you!
Speaking with fellow Filipinos face to face about mental health is so difficult. Moreover, finding a therapist who understands the culture is even harder especially in the Filipino community. So when I found Roanne on Instagram, I was so excited to connect with her. We quickly hit it off via email and even more so during our video chat. Technology is such an amazing tool to connect like minded individuals. I’m amazed how much support is out there!
Interviewing Roanne was important to me because I wanted to hear her perspective and insight on mental health in the Filipino culture. She is able to give two types of perspectives – immigrant Filipino and psychotherapist – the wisdom she has is immeasurable and so valuable to our community. She gave me such insight on so many things about our culture that I didn’t understand. I am confident you will enjoy all of the nuggets of wisdom she shares. Please enjoy the audio interview below.
