  • Know Your Mind: An Interactive Session With The Parents

    Trijog conducted a mental health awareness workshop with parents on 9th February 2019, at the Abhay International School. The goal of this workshop was to help parents gain a deeper knowledge of mental health and issues surrounding it as well as knowledge about concerns commonly seen in children and measures to be taken for the same.
    The session began with mindfulness meditation followed by a discussion between with the parents about what is mental health. Our therapists defined mental wellness and how it refers to a broad array of activities directly and indirectly related to mental well-being, prevention of mental health conditions, treatment and rehabilitation.
    They explained what what caused mental health conditions, be it genetic, psychological, social or other causes. Busting some myths like people with mental health issues are violent and dangerous, that mental health conditions can never be treated was highly vital.
    They highlighted how important it is to sit with one's child and understand their issues, give them the freedom to express their emotions and provide a safe and nurturing environment. An example of how if a child is not good academically active then it doesn't mean he's not intelligent was given to explain normality and abnormality. For instance those with an IQ of 90-100 are considered to be "normal" while those with an IQ below 90 or above 100 are considered to be "abnormal" or "specially abled." Simple steps to mental well-being both for ourselves and for others like setting realistic expectations, giving equal importance to both physical and mental health concerns, inculcating good eating and sleeping habits were explained.
    With the parents participating enthusiastically, the session turned out to be an enlightening and informative one.


  • The Mental Health Jam- Mental Health in the Age of Social Media

    After a highly successful inaugural session, the second edition of the Mental Health Jam Series held on 12th February at the SoHo House, Mumbai focussed on “Menta Health in the Age of Social Media”.
    With the aim to champion wellness in and out, this discussion was led by Arushi Sethi- Founder, Trijog, Kakul Faruqi- Our Expert Therapist and The Artidote’s Jova Ferryra.
    The Artidote is a virtual community and space where can story tell, empathise, bond and heal through art. The platform carries a cumulative following of over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.
    As the discussion flagged off, Kakul and Jova spoke of their personal inspiring trysts with mental health, what made join this field, what kind of work they do and why they are here today.
    With social media taking up most of our attention and time in this age, how does it impact our mental health? Is it beneficial or does it end up causing more harm? Like any issue, this one too has two sides: the pros and cons.
    While Kakul spoke of how as a therapist that she thinks social media impacts an individual’s self-image, how it can both help boost it as well as damage it and where we should strike a balance for our well-bring. She elaborated upon how it influences human behaviours and the way we engage in and view our relationships. How for instance uploading an image of a lovely time with friends can help us cherish that moment and re-live, the appreciation of special moments in our lives shouldn’t become based on whether they are Instagram-worthy or not.
    Jova spoke of how what is the importance of social media, how it can positively impact the community and how our interactions on it in our daily life impacts our mental health. As an example, for some looking at the sunrise instead of aimlessly scrolling through their social media feed might be more liberating and refreshing while for someone else, a random dog’s image on Instagram can turn a dull day into a beautiful one!
    Jova also answered questions on how running a successful mental health platform like The Artidote on social media has influenced his opinion of how it can impact the self-worth of a human being and how it offers a common community to people to learn new things and imbibe new practices for their mental and spiritual well-being.
    The conclusion of this insightful session was that social media truly has both tangible and intangible effects, that it impacts our self-image and self-worth depending on our own perceptions, it influences our ideals, our behaviours and our complexities and relationships.
    Thus it ends up impacting our mental health, because our ideals, relationships and behaviours are a by-product of our mental health.


  • Mind Detox with Arushi Sethi- At IIT Bombay's Abhyuday

    On 12th January, 2019, greeting a crowd of enthusiastic students at IIT Bombay's Abhyuday Fest, each of them eager to learn more about mental health, Arushi Sethi began with the heart-warming words, "Before all my titles, I am a part of this beautiful creation, a human being. And I belong to you. Each and every one of you."
    With this session, her goal was to go beyond the titles, the faces and names and look within. To create a safe space and haven for all to share their own life experiences. To understand the mind, its feelings and thoughts.
    She spoke of her journey, her own tryst with mental health and the inspiring birth of Trijog.
    She then went on to explain why the mind is important and what is the mind, for isn't the most mysterious and interesting phenomenon? It can go everywhere yet be nowhere, all at the same time!
    With the students completely engaged, she went on to do an activity wherein the students drew what they felt their minds looked like. Some of them shared their reflections where one had drawn a flowerpot and shared as to how her mind felt like one.
    Arushi then spoke of the triangle of thoughts-feelings-actions which end up defining the experiences of our lives.
    With the key message of the session being to understand and accept our thoughts and emotions, she ended the session with a small yet transforming activity titled "The Journey Inwards."
    Everyone was asked to close their eyes and move to soothing music playing in the background. Then they were asked to pose with their eyes closed, with the hidden message that the pose they chose expresses the current state of their minds.
    This session for everyone, was truly a beautiful insight into their own selves, an unwinding time for their minds.
