Community Health Specialist, Fraser Health
A mental health advocate and researcher, Sukhdeep stepped away from the science of mental health after the loss of her mom to gain a deeper understanding of what it meant to express and experience human emotion. Living in an increasingly isolating and divisive world, finding ways to have meaningful conversations and find our common humanity is her passion. Healing intergenerational patterns requires acts of bravery and shining light on beliefs that we may feel ashamed to hold. Speaking honestly enables growth. This is her attempt at being brave and sharing one story that needs to be told.
