Collective of Minds
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 discuss 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.
As of now, we have conducted the following sessions under Collection of Minds and have been well received.
Getting in your own shoes: Understanding Self care
Dear Emotions, I feel you: Exploring Emotions
Pets for Mental Health
Pause and Reflect
We had the opportunity to conduct our first workshop in 2019 for the students of the winter internship organised by Youth for Mental Health. With a room full of enthusiastic students, we were able to discuss and dissect the representation of mental health on social media alongside the power that each of us hold to propagate mental health awareness in our differing capacities.

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. Kudos to all the individuals who were a part of our endeavour.
