Mission Statement

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.

Description

MySahana, a nonprofit that won the ICC Seva Award for the most innovative nonprofit, is dedicated to correcting misinformation about mental health in the South Asian community. The idea is that by providing education, South Asians can learn to recognize for themselves when to seek professional help which will create a long standing change in the community on how mental health is viewed.

To do this, we are looking for hardworking, dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic interns and volunteers to work on a wide variety of projects.
