Step to cope with stress
Stress has been a common problem during these tough times of Covid-19 and people need to address it because it can in some cases cause some very serious mental health issues. This Instagram live webinar was aimed at providing the steps to cope up with the stress during the lockdown and how to overcome it. The session also had a QnA session so that the attendees could seek help for their problems then and there. Ms. Aakansha Bhatia from the organization ‘Together we can’ was the speaker of the session.
Importance of Mental health
“No health without mental health”, is a mantra by The National Institute of Mental Health. The stigma that often surrounds mental health of millions of people worldwide is that they do not receive the help they need. However, Mental Health Awareness means bringing down these walls of stigmas by sharing our experiences, stories, and truths. It means educating others on what mental illness REALLY is, and helping out those with illnesses who think they are alone.
Therefore, making sure that no one in our surroundings, including our friends and family, suffers from this, EnactusShivaji took an initiative to spread awareness on the ‘Importance Of Mental Health’. We had Mr. Arjun Gupta, an author, a mental health proponent, and a survivor himself as our speaker. Mr. Gupta enlightened us with his own story and told us about the problems as well as the mental state he went through.The session surely motivated a lot of students, in this era where youths suffer from severe mental health conditions. The webinar was overall very informative and interactive and ended with a QandA session, where all the doubts and questions were taken up and answered by him.
Ending with Stigma
Talking about our mental health issues has been a stigma in our society for the longest time. An Instagram live session was conducted with Ms. Aishwarya Ajwani who is working with an organization called ‘Happiemindz’. This session helped people come out and talk about their mental health issues openly without any fear of judgment. The primary aim of this session was to make this society understand that mental health issue is not a taboo or stigma and we need to end it. Many participants clarified their doubts and overcame their fears during the QnA round.
