MINDCON 2020 is an initiative by The Mind Research Foundation to Kick-Off a series of Crucial Conversations with experts from the field of Mental Health and beyond! We are living in unprecedented times. World events have impacted us all with no “normal” way of living, and no “going back to normal” is on the horizon Owing to COVID-19, The Year 2020 placed heightened emphasis on Mental Health and the exigent need to focus on Preventive Approaches to Positive Mental health.
Therefore; as we step into 2021, it is important to have a sense of urgency about Mental Health; and rethink and reconfigure our approach to a post-pandemic future. It is vital to emphasize on the need to respond to mental health well-being of people and take proactive steps to enhance Mental Wellbeing at large!
MINDCON 2020 is a Curtain Raiser to a continuum of conversations to understand and speak about Mental Health. The Confluence will not only be looking at the psychological distress that COVID-19 has created; but will also focus on discussing the existing mental health issues, stigmas, myths, disorders and much more – conversations that have been hushed under the carpet through the years. The Confluence aims to bring together Influencers, Mental Healthcare Experts, Advocates, Professionals, Youth Voices & Change Makers to share their vision, and outlook towards mental health. We aim to bring focus on the ability of an empowered mind and the power that thoughts hold in healing us!
