Yo: I have been going to shrinks since 10th grade. I am working to normalize seeking mental health care in the South Asian community. Get help if you need it. There is no shame. Think about it as a career investment. Beta big4/MBB partner banana hey, to demagh sahi kaam kerna chahiyey? This is just like investing in your MBA or taking the GMAT.

I will share that I have sought therapy for academic stress, family illness/tragedy, as well as career issues. Please reach out to a professional. Covid is an especially difficult time, and again no shame.

Preachin to the choir, I’ve been in therapy for my traumatic childhood since I was in high school. It’s a must because all the perspectives out there do not facilitate healthy thinking patterns that would lead to long term health.

In India I haven’t seen this mentality trickle into the lower and middle classes yet.

It is still stigmatized.
