Awareness and Acceptance: A Step to Better Mental Health

Rcoz Launches Asian-Indian Mental Health Initiative

May being the Mental Health Awareness, Rcoz kickstarted their Asian-Indian Community initiative with an outreach event for Prothoma—a local Bengali association with 300+ members.  They approached Rcoz seeking assistance in promoting mental health awareness and acceptance.

An important component was to showcase voices of relatable people sharing their stories and experiences along with the expert opinion of Dr. Seema Sehgal, a board certified psychiatrist. The session elicited quite a positive response as one participant shared their story of seeing young ones struggling with their feelings and emotions. Initiating such dialogues holds promise for potential life changes and fostering open communication among loved ones, thereby removing the stigma associated with mental health and normalizing it. This presentation was a big and necessary step in the right direction but much work still needs to be done.
