The Mental Health Campaign

The anonymity of radio allows us to create a space for conversations on mental health issues and to break the stigma

We use radio to address the silence and stigma surrounding mental health issues. Given the stigma to speak about mental health, and to reach out to professionals for help, the privacy and anonymity of radio allows our listeners to call in and talk to psychologists in our studio during live phone-in programs every week.

Udaan, is a weekly Live Phone-In show in partnership with counselor Satish Kaushik and a host of psychologists. The weekly program features Mr Kaushik and a counselor taking on a range of mental health issues across age groups.

Bavra Mausam is our weekly program on adolescent emotional health, produced in partnership with the feminist organization CREA.
