Welcome to LonePack, a community of people who are passionate about advancing the cause of mental health. It's our aim to shatter this stigma surrounding mental health and our dream to create a world where battles against mental health are not fought in the shadows anymore.
"LonePack Letters" is our latest initiative which aims to spread awareness on mental health issues. As part of the initiative, we encourage people to write in letters, preferably handwritten which would bring a smile onto the faces of the people reading them. We collect these letters and after vetting them, place them at various public spaces all over the city for people to pick up and read. The envelopes would also contain a note from us highlighting the widespread nature of mental health issues and how a few words of kindness and support would go a long way.
We are reaching out to schools, colleges and other groups to be a part of this campaign.Write a letter now
On World Mental Health Day - October 10, 2018, LonePack launched the #MentalHealthMatters campaign with the aim of taking the conversation on mental health forward. Members of our community came forward and told us why they think mental health matters to everyone. Watch what they said below. You can share your thoughts too.
Talking about the event that was held in collaboration with the NGO LonePack, Gayatri said, “The idea is to find a receptive, conducive audience to highlight issues and share talent. With this month’s theme being mental health awareness, we want to do away with taboos and the general perception about mental health.”
