Mental health is not a luxury, but a necessity that determines how well you lead your life and for how long
The keener we look around us, the more we can find out that our world is being engulfed by negativity. In today’s world, helping a person attracts suspicion, ignoring doesn’t. Mental health programmes are a field of healthcare that is very much underappreciated and is often ignored in terms of significance. With the government continually slashing financial resources for agencies and people who are trying to preach the importance of mental health due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become even more important now to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and the approaches that could help in supporting these services. The growth and expansion of self-help and mental health doctors has already begun to show the effect that they could have on personal development and the treatment given in therapy and counselling. But, there is still a long way to go. The availability of mental-healthcare providers is very low in the world even though there are a few well-known psychologists in the world doing their best to raise awareness about the importance of mental health. Nabhit Kapur, a globally recognised ambassador for mental health tops this list of psychologists.
Nabhit Kapur is a renowned psychologist who specialized in studies related to different mental states, perceptual, behavioural, emotional, and social processes and actions through research and experimentation. He is also a Psycho-Preneur, an author, a TEDx speaker, and an internationally recognized ambassador for mental health and peace. He was awarded numerous recognitions including the “Order of Kentucky colonel” and “Eminent peace ambassador”, by The International Association of World Peace Advocates. His career path hasn’t been simple. He received an honors degree in applied psychology from Amity University and a postgraduate degree in counselling and psychotherapy from IBMS, Chittoor. He is also specialised in Handwriting analysis & Therapy. Despite facing many setbacks in his life, he has been able to set into motion some impactful improvements in many regions of the world like the African continent through his perseverance and dedication.
In 2015, he started working with many NGOs, hospitals and schools to gain experience and training which eventually led to the establishment of “PeacfulMind Foundation” (PMF), a global organization registered with the United Nations (U.N.) Global Compact. The foundation provides a range of educational programmes and supports community service for mental health. Their outreach has helped many people throughout the world. In the last three years, Kapur has taught over tens of thousands of children on how to balance and maintain their mental health. He has accomplished ground-breaking progress in Africa over the last couple of years through his engagement on mental health issues aimed at reducing societal taboos and fostering mental health in the community. He was featured in various online news panels and print magazines for his esteemed work and reputation like Cooperate Investment Times, Exelon magazine, Forbes, Statesman, Daily Search, Top 100 Magazine, The Week, Las Republicas etc. He is also a member of Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland and West-African public health institute. “My goal has always been and will be to make people prioritize their mental health as a critical facet of life”, remarked Nabhit Kapur.
