Sexual assault and abuse is a silent epidemic that affects every race, religion, or socioeconomic status.

While it is a subject enveloped in silence and shame in any community, multicultural communities often have unique forms of stigma that make it very difficult for survivors to heal. Survivors often suffer from Depression, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, eating disorders, and other mental illnesses.

In this episode, we discuss this issue with Kimberlee Parmer, who is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern at the Brazos Valley Sexual Assault Resource Center. In addition to talking about sexual violence, we will be covering how to help loved ones in crisis.

With our MannMukti podcast series, we aim to connect our listeners with mental health professionals as well as those with lived experiences of mental illness. Our podcasts are often conducted in an interview format, with one or more members of the MannMukti team asking questions of a guest. Each episode features a different guest who can speak to us about a unique topic in South Asian mental health, but the constant theme throughout each podcast is a conversation about stigma.

If you’re interested in learning more about any of the episodes or guests or taking part in a future interview, please feel free to reach out to us at

We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and… #SpeakUp!
