Tara Table Talk
“You’ll be fine!” Opening Up About Mental Health
Thur, 22 April
Tara Table Talk is our curated series of panel discussions that explore the complexities facing our world through a South Asian lens.
After a difficult year, our panel will explore the topic of mental health and the conversations surrounding it, with a particular focus on how mental health is perceived in South Asian communities and beyond.
“You’ll be fine!” Opening Up About Mental Health offers a space to understand and unravel some of the difficulties that can be encountered when talking about mental health.
We’ll examine ways we can all engage in conversations, identify the signs of mental health problems and provide and find support. Our panel will also discuss what organisations like Tara can do to help. We’ll also be looking at the challenges artists face coming out of lockdown and the impact of recent events on our emotional wellbeing.
This event will be chaired by Sunita Pandya, Executive Arts and Culture Consultant and Chair of Tara Arts Board

Dr Kiran Sanghera: Psychiatrist, who currently works in the Crisis Assessment and Treatment Team, West London NHS Trust and was also recently shortlisted as a Social and Humanitarian Finalist for the 2020 Asian Women of Achievement Awards, for her advocacy and campaigning work.
