Belongg Mental Health Collective organised an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session with Deepa Pawar, founder & director, @anubhutitrust to address questions on Caste and Mental Health.
About Deepa Pawar-
Deepa Pawar started working with youth in communities since she herself was 14. One of the first and few post- graduate women from her entire Gadiya Lohar nomadic tribe of India, Deepa has closely seen and written about mental distress caused by social hierarchies. She is the founder director of Anubhuti, an intersectional feminist organization working to build socio-political leadership of youth towards a more just, equitable and democratic society. A recipient of national and international awards, her work with colleges to make them mentally healthy is recognized internationally; she was one of 3 from India in the global Goalkeepers platform where she represented this work.
