Hey everyone! I wanted to ask you all a favor.
For one of my
classes I'm writing a paper about mental health and how it can be
affected by different perspectives and/or taboos/stigmas across various
religions and ethnic cultures. I was wondering if people could please tell me (either here or in inbox, up to you) a bit about how you see mental
health/mental illness being responded to both within our Coptic community and within the general Egyptian community (including non-Copts).
ie. do you notice a general supportive response, a more stigmatized response, a neutral response to the general idea of mental health? Or such a response to the idea of seeking medical help for mental illnesses?
