Dr. Helen Hsu, a Stanford clinical psychologist, grief expert and expert consultant on the popular Nextflix show "13 Reasons Why" sat down with me to discuss mental health across cultures.  Our conversation ranged from a vivid and enlightening discussion of how grief may look different in (what we know to be a highly diverse population) Asian and Asian American culture, to helping college students and their families manage mental health to the very popular TV show she consulted on and her thoughts on how we can be more honest, open and realistic about the mental health concerns of young people today.

Having lost my own mom when I was pregnant with my second child, I listened intently to Dr. Hsu describe a beautiful grief tribute that she witnessed in a colleague which reflected his Eastern perspective (which is very different from how we are socialized to grieve in Western culture).
