The conversations will gradually move towards addressing mental health laws and policies.

 

The first talk of this series was heartwarming, with individuals coming out and sharing their personal narratives, experiences and stories. It has motivated us even more to continue on this endeavor to reclaim madness: give it new meaning and define it for ourselves.

We are delighted to share that this time we will have with us Dr. Mani Kalliath, mental health activist. As a continuation of the 1st meeting, he will facilitate a participatory sharing and reflection on the present context of individuals’ lives’

 

This is an invitation for an evening of sharing stories, interacting with individuals from the field, reflecting, questioning, and simply enjoying the space together.

 

One of the objectives of the series is also to create a safe space for individuals to come together and share their own experiences and for us to develop organic support systems.
