In tune with men­tal health

Mid Day - - Daily Dossier -

It’s that time of the year when open air mu­sic fests be­come a com­mon fea­ture on the city’s cul­tural cal­en­dar. While the bigticket gigs al­most al­ways are com­mer­cial in na­ture, an up­com­ing con­cert, sched­uled for this week­end at a BKC venue is look­ing at open­ing up con­ver­sa­tions around men­tal health, the stigma at­tached to it and the need for seek­ing help. This is step two of the #SunoDekhoKaho campign launched on World Men­tal Health Day last month. It will fea­ture artistes Vishal Dad­lani, Shekhar Ravjiani, Shal­mali Khol­gade, Amaal Mal­lik and Ar­maan Ma­lik. “To­day, men­tal health is a se­ri­ous con­cern in our so­ci­ety. It is im­por­tant to spread the word and be more sen­si­tive to the is­sue. We need to pledge to be more mind­ful — and to suno, dekho, and kaho to al­le­vi­ate this stigma,” Ravjiani told this di­arist. We sure like the sound of this move­ment.
