Iridescent Women interviews HabitAware Co-Founder, Aneela Idnani 

In honor of #BFRBAwarenessWeek, in this episode of season 3, we interview Aneela Idnani, Co-founder & Marketing/Design Lead at HabitAware. For more than 20 years, Aneela hid her battle with compulsive hair pulling disorder (trichotillomania), a mental health condition. After sharing this secret, she began HabitAware and created Keen, a patented smart bracelet that uses gesture detection technology to bring awareness to body-focused-repetitive-behavior like hair pulling, skin picking and nail biting, issues that negatively impact more than 20 million Americans alone. Aneela is a mental health advocate, raising awareness of these very common yet unknown conditions.

How can awareness help us discover healthier coping mechanisms? How can we overcome the shame and stigma that exist around mental health conditions? How do we cultivate a greater self-compassion? How can we grow in empathy and support the mental health of those around us? These questions and more will be explored in this latest encouraging and empowering episode.

 

Take a step forward in your BFRB journey. Invest in a keen bracelet today.
