Your culture is your beliefs and it shapes the way you interact with the larger systems of society. As well, your culture is a part of how you seek support, how you cope with stress, what resources you have in place, and how you might ask for help. You carry this diversity with you in your interactions with systems of care. Seeing your culture reflected in the services you access can have an effect (positively and negatively) on the way they are able to support you.

What are some of the main beliefs you carry with you?

How does your culture impact the way you see the world?
