MERAKI: SOCIETY FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Be Kind to Your Mind
Meraki: The Society for Mental Health at DME aims to initiate change and sensitize students about mental health and focus on the art of empathizing. It endeavours to establish a community garden for students and provide guidance and psycho- emotional support. Mental health encompasses the overall wellbeing and impacts our lives in many ways. It is an initiative to equip the students to meet the multiple challenges and expectations beyond academics.
In pursuit of our Vision, we strive to:
- Promote improved mental well-being for all individuals through education, support and advocacy.
- Become a humane and healthy society in which all people are accorded respect, dignity, and the opportunity to achieve their full potential free from stigma and prejudice.
- Improve the community’s understanding of mental health and enhancing interpersonal relationships through better and effective communication.
- Provide education and opportunities for students to identify their creative potential and subsequently provide programs and an environment that supports a healthy state of mind and improves resilience for all.
The role of the society shall be of a facilitator (and not as a counsellor or a therapist) to make students aware of the importance of mental health. It strives to make everyone value their mental health and lead happy and peaceful lives.
