Elizabeth Nguyen is from Honolulu, Hawaii, and is the daughter of Vietnamese refugees who arrived in 1975.
She has a background in Human Biology and Psychiatry, which gives her a unique perspective on the cross-cultural aspects of mental health.
Her career in community mental health and her interests in spirituality and psychiatry led her to write her first book, Aloha Vietnam.
Elizabeth reached out to me a while ago and shared her book with me. I am a notoriously slow reader so this interview has been a long time in the making but I’m so excited to talk to share her story with you today.
In this episode we discuss the gap between mental health needs in Vietnam versus the reality, and compare the perspective of mental health in Vietnam to Western outlooks in countries like the USA and UK.
