Cambodians—Let’s talk about the Khmer Rouge, (James Heng S1, Ep 10)
Part I of our conversation on the Cambodian community with James Heng, a DSHS-certified Khmer interpreter and Khmer Health Board Member. In his free time, he organizes concerts and entertains the Khmer community in WA state.
In this conversation, you will
- Understand the trauma many Khmer hold that you likely never think about
- Learn the perils of using a family or staff for interpreting without thinking twice
- Hear why there’s such a stigma around mental health or being open to a diagnosis of mental health disorder
- We also cover food, substance use and traditional practice
