Two Millennials Go on a Social Media Fast

No pings, likes, or double-taps, oh my! Social media is an everyday norm for 3.5 billion people around the world, and while it has the power to bring people and ideas together, there are studies showing it can make people feel more disconnected than ever.

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!
