Mind Crusaders 3192

Amidst rapid paradigm shifts in and out of our daily mundane, we realize that Hope is the rope that carries you through life. Reflecting on a theme that could potentially change the world, Rotary International President Rtn. Gordon McInally declared the theme for the year 2023-24 as CREATE HOPE IN THE WORLD, with a focus on MENTAL HEALTH.

Mind Crusaders are the Rotary District 3192 team focusing on Mental Health.

Let us remember that mental health is a universal right. Every individual deserves access to mental health care, support, and resources to lead a fulfilling life. We are dedicated to spreading mental health awareness and promoting well-being. Let’s break the stigma and prioritize mental health for all. Together, we can create a healthier and more equitable world.

The Mind Crusaders team has many programs covering every demographic as mental health concerns are not restricted to any particular age group.. Our three flag ship programs are Mano Vikasa, Mano Chetana and Mano Vandana. Tap each of them and learn more.

Mano Vikasa is a series of programs designed specifically for young children. This addresses children who are under pressure to perform at their best for exams, undergo peer pressure, bullying and similar mental health concerns. All schools, and Interact schools in particular, are covered under this.

Mano Chetana is aimed at the youth. The youth of today face many areas of stress. First time job seekers, the young married, post-partum depression and similar concerns are very common for them. This program covers all the youth and Rotaractors in particular.

Mano Vandana is our program designed for the elderly. The elderly are not immune to mental pressure and stress. Problems of isolation, physical degeneration, critical illnesses all can contribute to their discomfort. This program covers the elderly, particularly in old age homes.

Mano Prerana

The popular podcast series from the Mind Crusader’s team is now available on Spotify.

The podcasts are conversations  with leading Doctors, Psychologists, Medical counsellors and other mental health experts on a wide range of topics. These are engaging and informative audio sections – which means you can listen to them while you are engaged in other work too!
