Salma’s ability to stand up and say, “Yes, I have had a difficult journey,” serves as an example to those who are secretly struggling.

MannMukti hopes to bridge that gap and increase awareness by providing resources, and by sharing experiences of people with mental illness through podcasts, an open forum, testimonials and more.
