A Licensed Psychologist and Marriage/Family Therapist talks to our CEO Abhi Ravinutala about her experiences and differences in dealing with clients in India and United States.

She mentions the complex nature of mental health and how indirect family situations and conflicts can affect a client’s kids’ mental health directly and how she manages to fight the stigma surrounding mental health to provide the right therapy to her clients.

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!
