Prateeksha Sharma

Dr. Prateeksha Sharma founded the Bright Side Family Counseling Center in 2017 to consolidate the work she had been doing since 2010, keeping recovery as the goal and focus for counseling services. The culmination of this span occurred between the years 2016-2020 in a doctoral research which examined the barriers to recovery from psychosis. As someone who understands mental health from an experiential perspective it is a decade of experience of recovery research that she brings to this enterprise, which is one of a kind, peer-led counseling center- a first in India. We focus on helping people recover, including leaving behind psychiatric pasts. This website, among several outreach programs, takes these ideas further and brings her research, findings and services to a wider number of people around the globe.
