MannMukti Team

Abhijith Ravinutala

Buddy Tangellamudi
VP Research

In this episode, we talk to Rana Khan, a former teacher, and leader of Friends of the Collaborative, a group of individuals with lived experiences of mental illness who have come together to support a research collective known as the Collaborative for South Asian Mental Health, which, coincidentally, is led by the guest from our last two episodes, Dr. Gursharan Virdee.

We’ll learn from Rana the exact reasons she wanted to start the FotC, the process she went through informing the association, and the success she has had in reaching out to the South Asian community at large.

As always, we’ll also hear about her own 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 info@mannmukti.org.

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