Navya is the co-founder of Aara Health, which is dedicated to issues surrounding general wellbeing. The page was launched on May 11, 2020. Navya along with her friends, Mallika Sahney⁣⁣, Pragya Saboo⁣⁣ and Ahilya Mehta⁣⁣ laid the foundation of the page, right after graduating. 

In a video published on Aara Health, Navya is seen chatting with the other co-founder of the page on the topic ‘Experience with Therapy’. Navya said, “It was something new for me as well. I wanted to kind of experience it myself before talking about it. Obviously, my family knows that I am in therapy but I don’t think any of my friends do. I don’t know if I would still go and tell them.

The four of them discussed how mental health is probably the most neglected subject and how we only visit a therapist, when we hit the rock bottom.

Navya also said, “I feel like I’d hit rock bottom multiple times and I just couldn’t figure out why. I was like, ‘Okay, obviously something has to change, I need to talk about it.’ I think it helped to come to that conclusion. Now once a week I am in that routine and I don’t think I am even close to hitting rock bottom because I have everything in control, I am talking to someone. Now I can identify what are the things that even get me to hit rock bottom. People realise too late sometimes that they need to get help.”

Navya also revealed that reality shows are her go-option when she wants to de-stress. She also mentioned how she enjoyed watching The Indian Matchmaking. 

Navya further said, “There have been times in my life when I haven’t been surrounded by positive people and I have seen how negatively it has impacted the way that I think. Not just about myself but about the world. I have learnt from then on that I am only going to surround myself with people who make me feel good and happy.”

Navya’s mother Shweta Bachchan appreciated the video and commented ‘Bravo’ on the IGTV posted on the page. 

Mallika Sahney while talking about her relationship with therapy said, “I always saw therapy as a way to grow. I was always open about therapy. I neither hid it from anyone nor felt hostile about it. It might not come up during conversations but I was always comfortable talking about it. Through therapy I tried to understand myself in a better way.” 

Pragya Saboo while talking about her experience said, “My biggest learning from my therapy was that it is ‘you’ who are in control of your emotions and how we must not let external factors drive our throught.”
