World Mental Health Day

About the Campaign

FairGaze (leading school media), along with India Is Us (i2u Social Foundation- a NGO support initiative working with over 100 NGOs), has initiated #OneDayForMentalHealth drive, coinciding with the World Mental Health Day observed on 10th October every year. This campaign aims to fulfill Sustainable Development Goals 3 (Good Health & Wellbeing) through the World Mental Health Day campaign by sharing awareness messages from mental health experts, psychologists, parents, and students. As a part of the campaign, we are introducing #ItIsOkay, #BeKindToYourMind, and #OneDayForMentalHealth in continuation of the existing hashtag chain #OneDayForFuture.

World Mental Health Day

What Is #ItIsOkay #BeKindToYourMind?

The campaign focuses on promoting the idea of developing a healthy lifestyle that focuses on both physical and mental well being. We need to normalize talking about mental health, drawing healthy boundaries, and owning up our emotions. For this we have introduced #ItIsOkay and #BeKindToYourMind. #ItIsOkay encourages students talk freely about mental and emotional well-being, while #BeKindToYourMind promotes healthy practices that ensure you’re healthy in every way.

Besides students and parents taking steps to normalize talking about mental health, we also have mental health experts (counsellors/ psychologists) sharing short videos on one particular mental health topic. Parents will also share short videos stating one tip they follow to keep their kid(s) mentally and emotionally happy.

Pictures of parents and their kids (with green ribbon on their arm) sharing #ItIsOkay (followed by a meaningful message) written on placards will be shared in the dedicated #OneDayForMental Health Facebook group.

Share your post with your friends and family to get as many likes as you can get. Winners with maximum likes would be announced every week. Final winner and ten consolation prizes would be announced LIVE during the Mental Health Awareness webinar on 26th Oct 2021.
