Chehak works as a Research Associate on Outlive, our youth suicide prevention intervention, where they are responsible for co-developing training materials, facilitating capacity building sessions and collaborating with stakeholders.
In the past, Chehak has worked with young people and women in low-resource settings using narrative and art-based frameworks. Their lived experiences as a disabled person inform their work, and they endeavour to be involved in advocacy, policy making and program development at the intersections of gender, sexuality, caste, and disability. Chehak aspires to create resources and build accessible healthcare structures for marginalised communities. They hold a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Bombay.
You’ll often find Chehak daydreaming, writing poetry, obsessing over animals or ranting about their unread books.
