Our Mission

Encourage healthy, open dialogue of South Asian mental health issues in an effort to remove stigma, improve awareness and promote self-care.


Fostering mental health conversations since 2017

MannMukti was founded by Abhijith (Abhi) Ravinutala because he lost a best friend. After mental health issues led to the death of his friend in 2015, Abhi knew that both he and the community as a whole could’ve done better by his friend.

He made it his goal to reduce the stigma against mental health issues in South Asian communities and to increase awareness and compassion for those living with mental illness.

Something had to be done to ensure that no one felt the way that his friend did.

In alignment with our mission to encourage others to #SpeakUp about mental health, we’ve created MannMukti Speaks – a blog where we aim to share with our viewers the most relevant issues affecting our community through a personal narrative.


Your general donation will be used to support our online services, grassroots events, and other service-related projects. We are a volunteer run organization. Your donation will not be used to pay for salaries.


As part of our mission, we host events in the South Asian community that aim at promoting healthy behaviors and giving people a platform to speak up about their mental health.
