Baldev Mutta will speak on ‘What makes a man hit a woman’ at the White Ribbon Conference


 

Baldev Mutta has over 30 years experience in the field of social work. He is the Founder and Executive Director of Punjabi Community Health Services (PCHS) in Peel.

His focus has been developing an integrated holistic model to address substance abuse, mental health and family violence in the South Asian community.

This integrated holistic model is based on three premises:

  • The client is in control of the treatment
  • The professional adjusts his/her clinical and community development approach to meet the client’s needs
  • The illness and wellness is understood from client’s cultural perspective

He has received many community awards for his work on equity, community development, diversity management, and organizational change. He also hosts his own television show, Community ConneXion, which airs every Saturday on Rogers Cable.
