On using stand-up comedy to disseminate their message,speaking to first post, Rachana Iyer said, “Other workshops on mental health are very boring and restricted to definitions. But comedy is very powerful. Here you have people who are actually experiencing it, speak about it — which is always better because the stories are unique.”
