How do we Do?

Awareness

❖ Mental health literacy is a related concept which is increasingly seen as an important measure of the awareness and knowledge of mental health disorders. Mental health literacy encompasses recognition, causes, self-help, facilitation of professional intervention, and navigating the information highway.

❖ We talk to the individuals and come to a solution which can give them temporary relief or we go for counselling sessions which can help them with desired results.

❖ We project popular faces and victims’ courage to come up and stand up from themselves and be ambassadors of positive change. They talk to the individual along with the panel of psychologists in order to boost the patient’s confidence. This is necessary to create the conducive environment and de-stigmatise the existing social taboos.

❖ We conduct regular webinars on mental health facets. Youth is an important part of the society and we need to focus on them.They are facing more mental health trauma due to lifestyle, loneliness, loss of job, depression, anxiety and other issues due to covid-19 pandemic situation.

 

Advocacy:

❖ The concept of mental health advocacy is used to promote the human rights of persons with mental disorders and to reduce stigma and discrimination.

❖ To spread awareness about the government policies and laws related to domestic violence i.e. Protection of women from Domestic Violence Act 2005 (PWDVA). We can study and understand the policies of other countries like Australia and how they address domestic violence issues through policy changes and what are the best practises.

❖ Advocacy leads to improvement in mental health policy and legislation of the country.

❖ Advocacy actions include: Awareness-raising, Information, Education, Training, Mutual help, Counselling, Mediating, Defending and Denouncing.

❖ We will understand how we can bridge the gap between the policy and its implementation.

 

Implementation

❖ Implementation can be achieved in safe and inclusive spaces for people to reach out and speak up their mind without thinking of further consequences.

❖ The achievements in implementation can be fulfilled only when people start accepting that the social stigmas need to be eradicated. 

❖ Crucial steps should be taken by the communities, when the victims can themselves be the ambassadors and most importantly when mental health will not be considered as an incurable disease.
