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
