Why mental health?
This is a topic that needs serious discussion. However, to get there, we also have to start creating awareness about things and situations that ail the mind. People are grappling with the loss of lives, livelihood, job cuts, financial troubles, and the trauma of living in a ‘new normal’ that is different from the one we were used to.
This has led to an existential crisis. As a result, many are battling loneliness, anxiety, stress, depression and mental trauma. More than ever there is a need for a forum that not only aims to educate but also to simplify mental health topics.
Why Mind Matters is a step in that direction. It’s about creating awareness. We will be reaching out to mental health professionals for their expertise and valuable inputs to shed light on different topics related to mental well-being.
