Interview with Gayathri Ramprasad
A very moving and powerful interview with Gayathri Ramprasad, founder and President of Asha International. Born in India where mental illness is something very shameful to discuss and/or admit, Gayathri suffered in silence for 7 years through agonizing panic and depression when one day in a psychiatric unit changed her outlook, her voice, and her entire world. Listen to her story below and hear one of the most poignant voices that split through the silence and shame of mental illness that I have ever encountered.
