There is a common misconception within the Desi community that mental health issues are only real if manifested in tangible, medicalized symptoms. However, the recent death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has shown how so much of mental health is unseen. In this episode we hope to show that mental health is a crucial part of individual and community health. Joining our discussion we have the passionate ladies from UMass MannMukhti, Diya Antony and Taeko Gupta. We think it is high time the Desi community opens its eyes to the reality of mental health and therapeutic healing processes.
