Trijog - A Journey To Light
‘Trijog’ when understood literally means- finding happiness in that light, i.e. the light within. Interesting right?
With a tagline that says ‘Know Your Mind’, Trijog is a unique and progressive mental health organization which was born out of a purpose of enabling healthy minds and creating a stigma free society.
Founded by renowned psychologist Anureet Sethi and her daughter Arushi Sethi, Trijog brands itself as a ‘Spa for the Mind’ and as a ‘venting platform for minds’ for the organization truly believes- “The approach towards mental health should be one, where caring for minds is as normal as caring for bodies.”
And true to all that it stands for, Trijog has personally transformed over 10,600 lives and has impacted a huge half a million people with its social work and campaigns, since it was founded in 2015!
How you ask? We’ll talk about the services in detail ahead. First, let’s understand the inspiring tale that led to the evolution of this organization.
BIRTH OF TRIJOG
Let’s go back to April 25th 2015- Nepal. Remember anything? The country has been destroyed by the massive 7.9 earthquake and that is where Arushi Sethi was for her vacation. Physically unhurt, yet mentally traumatized, she endured the consequent aftershocks as well and was finally airlifted back to India.
Back home however, she suffered from severe trauma with erratic mood swings, nightmares and the comforting words of friends and family doing little to help her. She realized only a professional counsellor could bring her out of this emotional darkness to light. And who better than her mother- Anureet Sethi herself? With the help of cognitive therapeutic techniques, she helped Arushi acknowledge her pain, recoup her self-esteem, mindfully avert traumatic memories and focus on the present moment. And it worked!
Having regained her mental strength and come out emotionally stronger, Arushi had an epiphany. If it was counselling that had healed her where friendly advice fell short, shouldn’t counselling and therapy be less stigmatized, much more affordable and approachable for the people in our country?
Thus, was born the seed of a warm, nurturing and comforting mental health-care platform in the minds of Anureet and Arushi Sethi.
Today, that seed has beautifully grown into ‘Trijog- Know your Mind’, a full-fledged and excellently staffed mental health enterprise serving children, adolescents, schools, adults and corporations.
