Dr Ashna Basu (Mental Health Consultant, University of New South Wales)
Once upon a time the word 'therapy' may have evoked an image of a doctor scribbling in a notebook while someone on an expensive sofa talks about their feelings. In 2019, therapy is being made accessible, affordable & available on the app store.

Dr Basu is a junior doctor with multiple publications in mental health. Having finished her terms as President of the NSW Medical Students' Council and a Board Director at Arc, she now works as a mental health consultant for tertiary institutions.
