Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Reshma Valliappan's work was prepared when Reshma Valliappan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Reshma is providing the early voice and leadership for persons living with mental illness to speak and advocate for their own rights. She is building a global community of people, both those living with and without mental illness, who are committed to this idea of self-advocacy and can become a powerful voice to respond to issues of stigma and injustice.
