Shuranjeet Takhar

Shuranjeet’s (he/him) is the Vice-Chair of NSUN’s Board of Trustees. His work sits at the intersections between academic research, mental health advocacy, and community organising. Following his experiences of mental health challenges he founded Taraki, an organisation working with Punjabi communities to reshape approaches to mental health. Shuranjeet is interested in the politics of mental health research, conceptions of evidence and how we include/exclude certain voices from these processes. Every day Shuranjeet is reminded of how little he knows, but how he feels more confident and excited by working alongside others to learn. He is hugely excited by NSUN’s work and potential, and looks forward to seeing how he can support shaping a more equitable and responsive world with them.
