Speaking at the virtual inauguration Neerja Birla, Founder and Chairperson, Mpower said, “Mental health is a sensitive topic and a deep-rooted stigma in our society especially today, amplified by the ongoing pandemic. Thus, it is absolutely imperative that we highlight and create awareness about the causes, the acceptance and the right treatment at an early age so that we as a society can together tackle the issue headon. Through Mpower’s Cell initiative, our aim is to provide clinical interventions for specific groups. ‘Mpower Cell, B.K. Birla College, Kalyan’ will extend professional support in terms of one-on-one counselling for students, faculty and the larger Kalyan community to overcome their mental health-related concerns. I sincerely urge all the stakeholders of B. K. Birla College, B. K. Birla Public School, Century Rayon, Century Rayon High School and Century Rayon Hospital to seek help from the highly trained and experienced mental health professionals at Mpower Cell.”
