Farah Saeed is from Rawalpindi, Pakistan, where she completed her Bachelor of Behavioural Sciences in 2014 at Fatima Jinnah Women University. Her undergraduate degree focused on Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology. The diverse subject areas allowed her to focus her research on issues affecting women within the Pakistani society. Following her graduation, Farah joined Rozan (an Islamabad-based NGO) where she worked on the issue of violence against women by generating awareness about gender issues, mental health and support for women survivors of violence. She was also a part of the Family Networks to improve outcomes in children with developmental delays (The FaNs Kids Project) at the Human Development Research Foundation, where she served as a research assistant and data manager. Farah’s interest in Medical Anthropology stems from her curiosity about traditional healing practices being utilised to treat illnesses, particularly mental health issues in Pakistan. Her aim is to one day help foster understanding between religious healers and mental health practitioners in taking a more holistic approach to treating mental disorders in Pakistan.
