How Immigration & Mental Health Intersect

I’ve been very frustrated by the way that the media portrays suicide. Suicide contagion has been on the rise for teenagers in wealthy, suburban American neighborhoods. Financial prosperity does not protect them from mental illness. But suicide deaths still aren’t really reported on.

RECOMMENDED:

  1. Foreign Bodies, a Carter Center-sponsored newsletter by Fiza Pirani, centering immigrants with a mission to de-stigmatize mental illness and encourage storytelling.

  2. One year after teen's suicide, Georgia father continues the fight, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Oct 27th, 2018), by Fiza Pirani
