Caring For Loved Ones With Mental Illness w/ Anita Wadhwani

Special Guest

Anita Wadhwani

MannMukti Team

Abhijith Ravinutala

In this episode, we focus on a different topic than usual.

Instead of talking to us about her own experience with mental health, Anita Wadhwani talks to us about watching her loved ones suffer through mental illness.

She bears the tough parts of her family’s story: taking care of her schizophrenic mother and dealing with her brother’s suicide.

Listen to her incredibly honest story to learn about how to care for others, how to care for yourself, and where to find joy in the tough moments.

We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and...



With our MannMukti podcast series, we aim to connect our listeners with mental health professionals as well as those with lived experiences of mental illness. Our podcasts are often conducted in an interview format, with one or more members of the MannMukti team asking questions of a 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

We hope you listen, enjoy, share, and… #SpeakUp!
