Tanmoy Goswami

founder Sanity by Tanmoy

Tanmoy Goswami is a user-survivor, lived experience expert, and independent mental health journalist based in New Delhi, India. After 14 years in corporate roles and business journalism, including at Fortune's Indian edition and The Economic Times, in 2019 he joined The Correspondent, an Amsterdam-headquartered media startup, as the world’s first Sanity correspondent. Following the closure of the company in the middle of the pandemic last year, Tanmoy founded Sanity by Tanmoy, India's first independent, ad-free, 100% reader-funded platform dedicated to the politics, economics and culture of mental health. It broke into one of the top six paid health-related publications on Substack within 100 days of its launch and was the only non-western title on Substack's leaderboard. Today, Sanity by Tanmoy has its own website and has built a community of nearly 2,500 subscribers globally. His interests include mental health at the workplace, the intersection of mental health and technology, suicide prevention, and media literacy. Tanmoy's work in this area saw him being selected into the Entrepreneurial Journalism Creators Program at the City University of New York's Craig Newmark School of Journalism. He is the co-author of a paper on suicide prevention in India (The Lancet Psychiatry, 2020) and a contributing author to a book on leadership lessons during the coronavirus pandemic (forthcoming, Routledge, UK). He is currently researching a book on the Indian mental health movement for Penguin Random House India.
