Mental Health may hurt India to the tune of $1.03 trillion
- The Economic Times
Mental health is one of the most critical aspects of our growth models, be it personal, societal or economical. WEF calculated that mental health conditions cost the world economy approximately US$ 2.5 trillion in 2010 and was projected to rise to US$ 6 trillion by 2030 alongside increased social costs. With a mere 2% of health budgets allocation to the treatment and prevention of mental health issues & most countries spending < 20% of their mental health budget on community mental health services, there's a dire need for grassroots community initiatives to bridge the information, governance, resources & services gaps in the current mental health & wellbeing ecosystem.
Project mu takes a conscious decision to strategically design, develop, execute community experiences, engagements and interventions at a population scale which are purely designed to proactively address the mental health crisis.
How might we rapidly build, empower & enable communities to adopt & evolve well-rounded growth models among the youth (age 13 - 35) to proactively prioritise their mental wellbeing?
In a rapidly changing world, our youth are at the forefront of innovation and transformation. Their boundless energy, insatiable curiosity, and unyielding spirit hold the keys to a brighter future. Yet, as they navigate the complexities of modern life, their well-being faces unprecedented challenges, making the nurturing of their health and wellness a moral imperative.
Project Mu emerges as a visionary initiative, carefully tailored to ignite the flame of youth wellness among those aged 13 to 35. It serves as a beacon of hope, a catalyst for transformation, and a sanctuary of knowledge, support, and empowerment.
In a world marked by stress, anxiety, and the demands of contemporary living, Project Mu steps forward as a guiding light. Our mission is crystal clear: to equip the youth with the tools necessary for holistic growth—physically, mentally, and emotionally.
