Making mental health a priority
We will continue to work on our mental health policy to make it more inclusive and expansive. In addition to these services, we will be organising sensitization workshops planned to build awareness and address existing gaps in mental health awareness. At the end of the term, we will garner structured feedback from you on the aforementioned services before continuing with them for the next term.
We look for your support in destigmatising mental health and emotional well-being in our community. Let us step up and offer support to each other while also taking care of ourselves. With continued collaborative efforts, let us make our community healthier and more sensitive to issues of mental health.
