South Asian women face unique mental health challenges due to intergenerational trauma, stigma against mental health, and cultural expectations. Culturally focused therapy can help South Asian women process past traumas, build community support, and develop communication skills.

Therapy can be a helpful resource for South Asian women to identify, process, and explore solutions to their challenges.

Culturally focused therapy is especially beneficial for South Asian women because it takes into account their unique cultural background and experiences.
