Meera Varma is a Mental Health Activist and TEDx Speaker from in Los Angeles, CA. Her struggles with mental health cast a dark shadow over many of her experiences as a teenager and were compounded by the cultural shame she faced when seeking treatment as an Asian-Indian woman. The cultural stigma she endured is what fueled her passion for activism at the age of 14. Meera’s work focuses on suicide prevention, mental health policy, and psychoeducation.
