Intro to SAMHAA

Mental health is important to all our lives but unfortunately there remains a lot of stigma and ignorance around many mental illnesses. As a result, many people are unable to get the help or support they need, and lose out on relationships, jobs, and, literally, “peace of mind” of living a fulfilled and joyful life. South Asian Mental Health Alliance (SAMHAA), founded in 2010, is a non-profit community network engaging, educating and mobilizing the South Asian community around issues related to mental health.
