The basic aim of this show is to aware people about mental health, lead people towards healthy conversations on mental wellbeing and eliminate prevailing taboos in the process. It is ok to not be ok.
Ruchika Varma, CMO, Future Generali India Insurance said, “At Future Generali India Insurance, we are persistently working towards normalizing the conversation around mental health and creating awareness that all of us are susceptible to mental health issues, and it is okay to come forward, discuss, and seek help. In that context, sports celebrities are perfect role models as they bring alive the importance of mental health issues in sports, a profession where one would think that physical health is the most important. Our ‘Mind Matters’ talk show brings to life a never-seen-before side of the sports personas – their challenges, struggles, and triumphs with mental illness. We are sure that their inspiring stories will send a strong message to a larger audience to pay heed to their mental wellbeing and proactively discuss challenges when the need arises.”
