On-campus Happiness campaign by Your Dost (October 17, 2023)

National Law University Delhi
World Mental Health Day Event
10th October is globally celebrated as Mental Health Day. The World Health Organization states that the objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.
The month of October becomes a significant time for communities, institutions, and individual stakeholders to come together and raise awareness about the significance of mental health and wellness awareness.
Your Dost October Campaign
The National Law University Delhi has a tie-up with the Your Dost Team to ensure the emotional well-being of the NLUD community. The team offers online counseling services and workshops for the community.
In light of Mental Health Day, Your Dost team organized an on-campus campaign to make the students aware and introduce the components of well-being- social, physical, cognitive and emotional health.
The event was held on 17th October 2023 by the resource person Mr. Satyaki Bhattacharjee from the Your Dost team. The event started at 3 pm and the happiness booth was set up outside the college canteen. As students visited the booth the resource person interacted with them and conducted an activity called BlockBusters – Mental health awareness, one block at a time.
It is an interesting psycho-educational activity that sheds light on the four pillars of mental health and wellbeing. The game tested the awareness of the students about the four major pillars of mental health – Social, Cognitive, Physical, and Emotional health. The participants picked up cards from the deck that had a mix of engaging mental health questions and fun activities and successful completion of each led to a higher score for the group or individuals playing the game.
The campaign lasted for over two hours and around 150 students participated in the game. The session proved to be an interesting engagement for the students and also initiated an important conversation about mental health.
