Twins work for change in Kuwait
Students fight mental illness stigma
In Kuwait, what’s not talked about must be bad. So twin sisters at Northeastern University are trying to talk about something few in their country want to discuss: mental illness. “You have to talk about mental illness because when you talk about it, it becomes something that’s more accepted,’’ said Alaa Alhomaizi. This is their second year at Northeastern. They transferred from Kuwait University because it did not have a psychology program.
