Hi, I’m Vidushi Karnatic from Haldwani. I struggled with a mental illness and made a full recovery. I’m telling you my story because the hardest part of my journey wasn’t the mental illness itself, it was the stigma I faced because of it.
Vidushi is 20 years old and studying cyber security. She's a blogger, speaker, and social worker. She founded a project called, 'Enlightening Hope Within' to help connect young people with mental health care services and help in Haldwani.
