About the competition
As we all know mental health is a pretty stigmatized subject when it comes to society. However one cannot deny the significance that it holds in a person’s life. Today, much of the work can be done virtually due to technological advances made by this world. However, if we are mentally unfit then we cannot even accomplish that. Hence, in a way mental health has established itself as a more concerning subject matter than physical health. With the advent of Covid-19, everything around us came to a halt. Students started online classes, people started getting isolated in general and their only chances of going out and relaxing were squashed because of the implementation of lockdowns. Hence this phase of 2 years has not shown mercy to anyone. As such it is of utmost importance that people are made aware of mental health and its significance. Hence with this objective in mind we at The Health and Wellness Committee are pleased to announce our very first article writing competition with the subject matter as ” Significance of Mental Health” in collaboration with TalkToAngel, a startup providing online counselling services for mental health.
About the Committee

Considering the major objective of the Committee, it has collaborated with an expert that works on an efficient online model where the students get the benefit to connect anytime from anywhere. The Committee believes that Mental Health is a substantial aspect of everyone’s life that is still not very much discussed and debated.
