Dr. Kimya N. Dennis is a prolific writer, college professor, community organiser, and a believer in interconnectedness and breaking down barriers. Her work combines the worlds of criminology and sociology, looking at cultural differences and encouraging a multidisciplinary approach for all doctors and mental health professionals where diversity is discussed every day instead of in workshops and seminars.

She wants to shatter the myth that “only white people have mental health issues,” challenging our stereotypes, assumptions and beliefs about suicide, mental health and depression at every level - from the individual, all the way up to the organisations and institutions who are training the future health and wellness practitioners of tomorrow.
