In this episode, we talk to Saranya Sundaram, M.R.C. who is pursuing her Ph.D in Clinical Psychology at Palo Alto University in California.

We’ll learn from Saranya about the role of culture in psychology, the current state of culture and assessment in psychological evaluations, and how various cultures define the concept of mental health.

As always with our guests, we’ll hear about Saranya’s personal experience with mental health as well as 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!
