MySahana, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness about mental health, emotional health and well-being in the South Asian community, was founded by Parijat Deshpande on January 25, 2010.
MySahana, meaning “my fortitude or patience” in Sanskrit, is a nonprofit organization designed to reduce stigma and increase awareness about emotional health and wellness in the South Asian community. Through easy-to-understand descriptions of numerous emotional health issues, educational workshops and culturally sensitive coping strategies, we hope to empower the South Asian community to realize their inner fortitude, take charge of their mental health and make better and more informed decisions for a healthy lifestyle.
