On Oct 15th at 3:30pm to 6:00pm in the Virohan Institute of Health & Management Science, Nagpur Campus the auditorium hall was decorated with posters of Mental Health Day promoting the theme. Hence the program started with the entry of our honorable chief guest center CEO Mr. Anant sir and HFIC Dr. Poonam ma'am, FIC Snehal sir, and Prasenjit sir.
The objective of the program was to raise awareness about mental health around the world and to mobilize affordance in support of mental health.
Moving forward, we began with the ‘Winning Our Own Battles: Case study presentation’ competition. Because of the case study presentation, we got to learn a lot from the case studies presented by the participants. Each participant introduced different types of Medical and mental health-related cases from which we got to know different types of cases and awareness from them. Everyone was introduced to the new ideas of how the symptoms can be hidden or unknown to the person and how they still suffer from that along with suggestions to improve and deal with our mental health and keep it healthy.
The second event organized was ‘Unboxing perspective: The Speech competition’. A bunch of students came up with their own stories which were surprising but on other hand inspiring for us that if they can deal with it everyone can. The students were listening with curiosity and patience like they wanted to know more and were very eager to learn. Both competitions were focused on the awareness of mental health and promoting health.
The VSC members shared some healthy tips and performed activities and presentations like personality tests, and testing the IQ level of students. The healthy tips were very useful to us like diet plans, meditation, self-care, etc. Every tip was somehow related to our daily life and how we can maintain mental health by taking care of our daily routine. The IQ test was very interesting and funny. Everyone really enjoyed it. It was a blend of creativity with brainstorming in an entertaining manner.
