013 | Honoring Our Life Force: Social Media, Mental Health, and Community Healing with Seher Sikandar - Part Two

Seher Sikandar is a multidisciplinary artist and community facilitator who blends creativity, media, and healing to support social change.  Born to Pakistani immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area, Seher now calls Brooklyn home. She describes her purpose as creating ”potent and inspiring medicine — projects, initiatives, works, spaces, movements — to help elevate the way we exist as humans.”  

In part two of our conversation, Seher and I explore:

  • Seher’s lifelong experience of cyclic depression

  • Mental health in families and communities of color

  • Access to mental health and making therapy a non-negotiable

  • Expanding our health care system to include mental health

  • How navigating plural identities as an American young woman and the daughter of Pakistani immigrants impacted Seher’s mental health

  • How healing ourselves supports the healing of the world

  • The collective shift of global consciousness and our current political reality
