The
Movement
Through Mpower - The Movement, we actively strive to Stamp Out Stigma associated with Mental Health Concerns. In India, it is extremely difficult to change perceptions related to mental health. The greatest challenge lies in overhauling the deep-rooted conditioning in society which perceives mental illnesses as an inherently bad thing. This manifests itself as guilt in the minds of individuals who have mental health concerns and they begin to see it as a personal failing. Through our Movement, we strive to bring about a cultural shift and a change in the mindset of people by addressing misconceptions, fostering positive attitudes, disseminating correct information, and alleviating stigma related to mental illnesses.
