Fatima is a South Asian immigrant woman who married a first-generation Canadian man with an East African subculture. She values and understands the complex dynamics between people of different faiths, races, ethnicities, and geographic regions.

What does good mental health look like to you?
To me, good mental health is the ability to ride the roller coaster of life efficiently. This includes taking time for yourself when needed, reaching out to a professional, and coming up with a self-care plan.
What is a motto or idea that gives you reassurance when you’re having a difficult time?
Hope is waiting for you in the dark. You are doing the best you can. You are bold, beautiful, and boundless.
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
I would offer great empathy, validate their feelings, and offer support or resources if needed. It’s important to let the friend decide what they need in the moment and help them fill their own cup.
