Fortis Healthcare has partnered with TikTok and People Like Us Create (PLUC) to launch #UnmuteYourself, an online movement against silence and stigma attached to the mental health.
As part of this initiative, Fortis Healthcare and PLUC will be conducting an interactive workshop with school and college undergraduate students to sensitise them about the importance of mental health in our everyday lives. These workshops will be conducted by Dr Samir Parikh, Director, Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences at Fortis Healthcare. The workshops will be conducted across Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Jaipur, Mohali, Ludhiana and other cities.
To extend further support and mobilize more people to participate in this movement, TikTok will launch a hashtag #UnmuteYourself, an in-app challenge inviting users to join movement against silence and stigma. Additionally, the hashtag description will provide information about the 24*7 helpline run in 14 languages by The Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences at Fortis Healthcare at +918376804102.
