Why I joined MINDS?

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it in the beginning.” Mahatma Gandhi

When I met Raghu, I felt very much connected to MINDS because I strongly believe in its purpose of eliminating stigma against mental health. I am truly moved by its all rounded approach of awareness, treatment, reintegration and sustainability. Also, my close association with Vadodara, India is a great motivational factor for me to contribute to this noble venture. It’s amazing to see whole team which is very knowledgeable, cooperative and supportive. I am very excited to be part of MINDS which, is growing phenomenally under the leadership of Raghu.
