Angelica and Stephanie say that talking about your feelings and emotions in the Pasifika community can be challenging due to cultural taboos. They say mental health is not widely discussed which makes it hard for community members to seek help and access support services.
Angelica and Stephanie share their experience of moving to and settling in Australia, and how this impacted their mental health. They encourage other Pasifika community members to talk openly about mental health and seek help when needed.
