" By being a Millennium Fellow, I want to bring out my empathetic and leadership qualities and do something for the betterment of the people. I believe this platform will let me become socially responsible and committed and allow me to make a difference. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Fortitude
Fortitude is a Mental Health club which aims to work on the Mental Health SDG put forward by the United Nations. It's an initiative by the team that works on mental health awareness and support.
This mental health group aims not just to be a support group, but also to serve as a safe space where like-minded students can spearhead activities and discussions that combat stigma. It serves several purposes, right from promoting mental health awareness and education within the college, to allowing students to lead projects based on mental health. It also provides an ongoing space for students to have a stigma-free place to discuss mental health and builds a bridge between community mental health resources and our college community. Talking about mental health in public still happens to be frowned upon, especially in a country like India!
