Rotary Club of Bombay Mahakali Heights conducts 3-hour Joint meeting with six other Rotary Clubs to bring the issue of Mental Health to Centre Stage

 

Rotary Club members have many opportunities towards humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Service programs address such concerns as health care, hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community. They believe in their ‘motive’ to serve.

On 29 July, the Rotary Club of Bombay Mahakali Heights conducted a 3-hour Joint meeting with six other Rotary Clubs at Shere-Punjab Gymkhana, Andheri East.
The panel comprised of five renowned Doctors from Bombay (Dr.Jyoti Maheshwari, Dr.Harish Shetty, Dr.Gaurav Kulkarni, Dr. Milan, and Dr.Pankaj Maheshwari).

Also making their presence were three NGOs (SHED, GullyClinic, and Clove). There were 45 members in the audience.

President Pinky Rajgarhia delivered the opening comments.
Thereafter, Mr.Sunil Anand explained the background, and the need for analysis, and the structure of the session wherein the specialist doctors, the NGOs, and the Rotary clubs would partner and take the campaign forward in the slums, schools, colleges, and other institutions.

The prime objective is to bring the issue of Mental Health to Centre Stage.
Mental health refers to the psychological well-being of an individual. This includes emotional, social, and cognitive aspects of health and can impact the way a person thinks, feels, and behaves.

 

Mental health issues are widespread and impact on millions of people worldwide.
It is estimated that one in four people globally will experience a Mental health issue at some point or the other in their lives. Approx. 10-20% of the Indian population is estimated to suffer from mental health disorders.

In the midst of the presentation and discussions, Dr.Jyoti conducted a Quiz purporting to the Myths relevant to Mental health. While Dr.Milan & Dr.Jyoti played a role and covered different types of disorders, Dr.Gaurav spoke on Suicide prevention and Dr.Shetty brought out the vital point that all citizens, especially Rotarians need to focus and lend a hand in the interest towards this broader cause and ensured that all panel members would be available to provide support and lend a helping hand.
