World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, Mental Health deserves to be nurtured to make human societies better places to live in

Bengaluru: With an unwavering focus on the comprehensive development of students, CMR University (CMRU) Bengaluru, is observing the World Mental Health Day on 8 October 2021.

This hour-long virtual program, called “Unmute and Echo” is conducted by the students of the Psychedelic Club at the School of Social Sciences and Humanities at CMRU. Key focus of the event is on “Mental Health In Today’s Uncertain Scenarios”. This activity is conducted in the Slam Poetry form. It combines elements of performance, creative writing, and competition by the students; besides inviting participation from the audience.

The Psychedelic Club aims to encourage and promote mental health awareness and build a greater understanding of the field of psychology. As discussions on mental health are still a matter of contemplation in human society, students at CMRU have consciously chosen the theme of Mental Wellness to bring discussions revolving around mental health to the mainstream in India.

The intention is to create awareness of the need to openly discuss mental illness and get treated scientifically.  

The participants in the Slam Poetry will get 5-6 minutes to perform. Registration for this online event is free and can be done through Google Forms at

The event is slated to be held on 8th October 2021 between 2.30 pm and 3.30 pm. It is open to students of all universities. The last date to register is 7th October before 5.00 pm. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) observes World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is “ Health in an Unequal World”.
