MH 360° Festival, India's first Therapeutic Festival celebrating inclusivity and mental wellbeing

MH 360° is a mental health festival that brings a holistic, integrative approach to mental health to the center of the discourse.

Our festival is a rights-based, inclusive and diverse celebratory safe space for people of all hues. We take a 360 degree approach to emotional healing, acknowledging neuro-diversity, social intersectionality & the disability lens. The festival will be a mix of expert panels, therapeutic workshops and cultural events, with a special focus on marginalized voices. Inclusion & diversity define our approach to mental health.

Our understanding of mental health is informed by various influences, including the WHO exposition of mental health, the UNCRPD’s recognition of psycho-social disabilities, stories of recovery of those with severe psychiatric diagnoses and ideas around social justice, Eastern philosophy and Resilience Science.

Mental wellbeing is determined by multiple factors and MH360 foregrounds this understanding, while placing the idea of compassionate empowerment and healing at its centre

 

Our cause

  • To demystify and normalize conversations around mental health, encouraging people to actively nurture their own and their loved ones’ emotional needs.
  • To offer a curated bouquet of resources/recovery choices for people in distress. Knowledge is power.
  • To encourage the building of solidarities, and a collective safe space where the LGBTQ+ community, and persons with disability can access healing through creative expression.
