As an adolescent, through the Indo-Canada Youth Exchange Programme, An international Youth Exchange Programme between Canada World Youth and the Government of India, aimed at international community development, cross-cultural exchange and language learning, she had led the music troupe and performed across Canada and India . She had participated in community development projects in both countries with a team of young people selected all across India to represent the nation as youth ambassadors. These experiences laid the foundation for her thinking and work in cultural sensitivity and inclusive working across the East and the West. 

Subsequently, she initiated multiple scientific research and community development projects bringing art and music together with the mind. In 2015, she founded i-MANAS London, an organisation created to promote the integration of Medicine, Creative Arts and Neuroscience for individual, familial and community development. Exploring the way in which we can harness the mind and brain’s potential, i-MANAS London delivers its message and work through creative global projects, that bring Science, Medicine and the Arts together across the east and the west.

She is currently pioneering the use of creative arts to support mental health in high-need populations across Europe and Australasia. Hailing from Bengaluru, India and having done her schooling and medical training in India, she has always had a strong wish to share her expertise and work with her home community. The glaring gap in board-certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists in India focusing on supporting children and young people made Dr Mohan to move to India for culturally-sensitive community awareness and development projects around mental health. 

Dr Ramya Mohan’s concepts and ideas are fully in tune with the latest developments on the arts, mental healthcare, social, civil, economic, political, educational, geographical and financial fronts across the world. Her fluency in English and various Indian languages, including, Kannada, Hindi, Urdu, Sanketi and Tamil allows her to switch seamlessly from one language to another in a culturally sensitive manner, depending on the person, group or situation.

Having conceptualised and worked on international business development projects linked to the UK Department of Health, British High Commission and the Secretary of State, Dr Mohan has had the opportunity to communicate effectively across cultures and borders. Combining her Indian roots with her working life in the West, she considers herself a global citizen with local sensibilities, with a good understanding of local languages, ethos, culture and systemic structures in modern India. 

Dr Ramya Mohan’s vision is to empower our children, young people and their families with the resilience, balance and self-assurance of mental health through the powerful amalgamation of neuroscience and the creative arts. She says that the support of the scientific and artistic community in both the East and the West, has been tremendous, encouraging her efforts to build a resilient and supportive world for our young people and communities..:::ω.
