    focus on Asian womenparticular stresses

    Apart from all the usual stresses that can contribute to mental health problems, some Asian women experience additional ones. These can depend on a range of factors such as their own personalities, where they live and their family circumstances.

    Specific stresses can include:

    racial harassment
    conflict between the expectations of family or community and those of friends, school, work, the media
    isolation, particularly if the woman has difficulty with the English language
    a forced or unhappy marriage
    an inability to adapt to Western culture
    poor housing
    problems finding employment.

    In addition, someone who is mentally distressed from a different culture may find it particularly hard to find out where to go for help or who to ask. And even when she finds the right mental health services, difficulties can still occur. It has been reported that many mental health problems among South Asian women are misdiagnosed and that inappropriate treatment is offered. This seems to be because many medical professionals think of Asian women as all the same, unaware that they come from a variety of very different backgrounds.
    You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

    ~Ibn Al-Jawzee
