A Free 2nd Healthy Mind Camp was organised at Prafulta, Center for Psychological Wellness, Andheri, on 20th October (Sunday), 10am to 1pm to spread the word about mental health care. This initiative was a another step towards celebrating The World Mental Health Month by the psychiatrists associated with Prafulta, Dr. Ruksheda Syeda, Dr. Wilona Braganza and a guest psychiatrist Giby Thariathu, along with our Director of Prafulta Father Godfrey D’sa.
The 30 clients who attended the camp expressed great satisfaction after having met the doctors. They were made comfortable while they waited their turn for consultation. During their wait period they were engaged viewing various videos on mental health that were continuously played. Their consultation began after checking their blood pressure and weight. One client said that “I am very happy and feel assured because I was not rushed and I had enough time to explain my problems to the doctor. I felt that I was really heard and understood”.
