Boulder, Colorado, US

Manish Gaur, located in Boulder, Colorado, possesses over 20 years of experience within the mental health and wellness industry. He began his career at the age of 18, working with at-risk youth in New Mexico. Understanding the children's hardships due to experiencing family violence and loss himself, Manish was able to create programs that effectively kept kids from gang life and criminal careers. Later in his career, he started working in Santa Fe at a day program for adults with disabilities. Manish saw how little independence and connections to the community those with disabilities experienced, and started devising programs to teach them valuable skills. Now, he is working towards a Master's degree in Counseling. Manish hopes to one day be a fierce advocate for those facing mental illness and disability.
