" I am very glad to be a Millennium Fellow as it will guarantee the chances of me being able to serve and help a thriving community of individuals in and outside our college. This platform will help me reach out to people I couldn't get to otherwise. I'm really thankful for this opportunity and I'll ensure that I do to the best of my capabilities "
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!
