The times we are living in right now are times we never imagined a year back. Things have definitely changed profoundly across business industries, sectors and most importantly, in our lives. Today, we are more aware of how important it is to prioritize health, not just physical, but mental, emotional, psychological as well. The pandemic has taught us many things and has made us understand the true value of life. Amidst these, we see how doctors, medical professionals and other generous beings have been working hard each day to make a difference in people’s lives who are suffering. Aiming to do the same is Peacfulmind Foundation led by psychologist Nabhit Kapur, who is more than what meets the eyes.
Peacfulmind Foundation (PMF), a global organization, registered with the United Nations (UN) Global Compact which aims to promote mental health reforms and advocating for mental well-being.
Today, when people are suffering from a monster of a virus called Coronavirus, a pandemic that has taken many lives over the world, PMF has come forward to make a difference, which so far has handled more than 1000 counselling sessions, pro bono basis working with Delhi Police and citizens as well . For all counselling services, they can contact Peacfulmind Foundation with their name and number and their volunteers would be more than happy to help them out and it is absolutely free. When asked about this initiative Nabhit kapur , founder of peacfulmind foundation said “ Mental health has always been important part of ones life and now it’s more than required seeing the conditions. Even when the cases subsides, mental health issues like stress, trauma , anxiety, fear would come to surface”.
Nabhit Kapur throws light on how he has read reports where 284 million people in the world get affected by anxiety, 264 million from depression, 107 million people from alcohol use disorder, 46 million people from Bipolar disorder, 20 million from Schizophrenia and the list goes on. Also, the World Health Organization (WHO) had estimated that the incidence of mental health disorders in India was 7.5% of the total population. He can’t emphasize taking mental wellbeing as a priority. Hence, Nabhit Kapur says that countries must start focusing on well-being diplomacy
The pandemic has only added fuel to the fire and has left many with feelings of despair and helplessness. This led Nabhit Kapur to make significant efforts through PeacefulMind Foundation and help individuals to address their mental health issues. He suggests that instead of getting busy doing politics, people and nations must leave behind the negativity and work collectively on the right path to serve the globe in the best possible manner.
