Discussion Groups were initiated in response to the need for mental and emotional support among individuals during the second wave of the pandemic in India. The aim of each group is different keeping in mind the social context and the population it is catering to though the objective is to provide a safe space where individuals express their shared experiences and the focus is on providing coping strategies to the participants. The group is facilitated by psychologists at our collective. These groups are based on the pay as you like format starting at a minimal amount.
COLLECTIVE OF MINDS: COMMUNITY SESSIONS
Collective of Minds is an initiative to engage our community by stirring conversations about aspects we deal with on a daily basis infused with creativity, activities and dialogue. We pick up themes on a weekly basis and explore them in detail in small groups. The primary idea is to make these sessions extremely interactive by sharing, listening and understanding what each of us have to say. We at Limelighting Life Collective believe that conversations are extremely important for they serve as a way for interaction, learning, growth and making changes. The sessions are facilitated by psychologists for different age groups including children, adults and geriatric population. Through these sessions we have explores themes such as self care, emotions, how pets and animals contribute to our mental health, and reflecting over the year 2020.
Psychologists at Limelighting Life Collective facilitate workshops regarding mental health, wellbeing and psychology. We organize open workshops which can be attended by anyone along with close workshops for schools, colleges, organizations and workplaces. Each workshop has a well thought of aim and objectives and are backed by psychological research. They are informative and experiential in nature. Some of the areas where we offer workshops are: understanding mental health & wellbeing at workplace and schools; understanding and setting boundaries (at workplace, & interpersonal relationships); sleep hygiene; scheduling; journaling; coping with pandemic, to name a few. We also provide customized sessions according to the needs of the organization on request.

MENTAL HEALTH BECAUSE..
World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on September 10 every year to raise awareness about the (hushed topic) of suicide and the steps that can be taken to prevent it on a bigger scale. We at Limelighting Life Collective believe that mental health is an integral part of our lives as it shapes every aspect of it. This video is our small attempt at highlighting the dire need for mental health and normalising it by removing the stigma that has been attached over the years. We had individuals from different walks of life sharing about the importance of mental health. Kudos to all the individuals who were a part of our endeavour.
