In this 2-part episode, we talk to Dr. Gursharan Virdee, a psychologist from the United Kingdom currently doing clinical research at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, and a Co-Lead of the Collaborative for South Asian Mental Health, a group that works to “develop a research strategy that promotes better mental health in South Asian communities”.

In this first part, we’ll learn from Gursharan about the efforts of the Collaborative and her own personal interest/experience in mental health.

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 info@mannmukti.org.

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