In Vihaan’s talk, he speaks about male mental health stigma, and how his upbringing in an Indian household has shaped his experience with this. This allows for greater insight into the structures that suppress emotional expression, and how we can better support men’s mental health to ensure greater well-being. Vihaan Khandelwal is a 17-year-old second-year student at UWCRCN, who lives in Stavanger, Norway but is originally from Gurugram, India. He aspires to work within the broad field of computer science, more specifically internet security. Growing up within an Indian culture, that does not show appreciation for men opening up about their feelings, he has grown as the juxtaposition of that culture. Over the last few years, he has become passionate about mental health, as he has been a peer listener within UWCRCN and has taken a course in Youth Mental Health First Aid. His personal experience with mental health has been the fuel for his talk, and he will be speaking about the intricacies of male mental health stigmatism. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
