In this episode, we start with Buddy and Abhi talking about the founding of MannMukti and our journey to site launch.

Then, we interview our first special guest, Megha Pulianda, who’s currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Texas Women’s University and working as a licensed professional counselor intern at The Montfort Group in Plano, Texas.

We’ll learn from Megha about what she wishes millennials knew about therapy and some of the common myths about therapy that she’d like to dispel.

In addition, we’ll hear about her personal interest/ experience with mental health and her thoughts on stigma in the South Asian community.

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!
