Jessie Brar

An active public speaker and mental health advocate

Jessie Brar is an active public speaker and mental health advocate. After struggling in silence with her own mental illnesses for many years, Jessie decided to use her experience to help raise awareness about mental health and mental illness in the community around her.

This lead her to create The Mental Health Spotlight, an organization dedicated to erasing the stigma around mental health in South Asian communities through digital story-telling and sharing resources. Through The Mental Health Spotlight, Jessie has created a dialogue about South Asian Mental Health and is pushing the topic to the forefront.
