Hello again TFAL listeners! Hopefully you’ve had the chance to check out our mini-episode on Filipino names. If not, check it out here!
And now we are proud to present to you our 2nd full episode: Therapy and Mental Health. Extra special thanks to Ernie Tamayo for being our second podcast guest, and for sharing his experiences as a social worker with Asian Pacific Women’s Center (APWC). APWC offers support to survivors of domestic violence, so if you or someone you know needs help, they are a great organization to connect with.
