Although World Mental Health Day falls on October 10, our full day Workshop to mark WMHDay is slated on October 8, 2023 it being a Sunday. We at Bipolarindia have been advocating a holistic health approach to support recovery from serious mental disorder such as Bipolar Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder and other other such chronic conditions.
This highly interactive Workshop, is therefore, focused in bringing to our community sessions by Facilitators from the very diverse fields of Yoga, Nutrition, Coaching and Humour.
