Stories of Stigma: South Asian Mental Health

With our MannMukti podcast series, we aim to connect our listeners with mental health professionals as well as those with lived experience of mental illness. Our podcasts are conducted in an interview format, with one or more members of the MannMukti board asking questions of a special guest. Each episode features a different guest who can speak to us about a unique topic in South Asian mental health, but the constant theme throughout each podcast is a conversation about stigma. If you’re interested in learning more about any of the episodes or guests, or taking part in a future interview, please feel free to reach out to us at testimonials@mannmukti.org. We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and #SpeakUp.
