Bengaluru: FLO Bangalore is focusing on managing Mental Health this March. With the members of the FICCI Ladies Organisation being largely entrepreneurs and senior professionals – a focus on mental health and its management was essential. In a first ever synergy, the traditional and the modern techniques would come together.
Master Akshar from the Akshar Power Yoga Academy and Dr. Sabina Rao, join to address the women of Bangalore of a holistic strategy to manage the challenges of a modern life.
While modern technology should make our life easier, but the challenges have really made our life more stress full.
Mental Health has been under increasing focus internationally and at home in India. Deepika Padukone became the first ever actress in recent memory to speak out about depression and having gone through the same in her life. Drawing from her own experiences, the actress has now opened her own NGO that will focus on spreading awareness about mental health and provide help to those suffering from depression and other forms of mental illness.
“Mental Health should not be considered a stigma. Neither should a person seeking mental help assistance be considered insane or mad,” says Rati Dhandhania Mundrey, Chairperson FLO Bangalore. “Mental Health is a challenge that needs to be taken as seriously as any other physical ailment. FLO members are senior professionals and entrepreneurs and lead busy and stressful lives. It is hoped that this synergy of the traditional and the modern would be able to help the women of today, deal with an increasingly demanding and complex world.”
