Did you know that as many as 28 youngsters commit suicide in our country each day? Realising the need for a dedicated service to help tackle the menace of depression led to the inception of the country’s largest virtual listening platform, Eat Luv N Pray Foundation. It aims to be a one-stop destination for young Indians in the age group of 15-29, seeking a constant companion who could just hear them out. This platform assumes even more significance in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic which has propelled a demand for better mental health and physical wellbeing.
This platform by ELNP Foundation aims to provide preventive care by listening and letting users vent out their innermost feelings and refrain self from heading towards acute mental illness. The platform ensures complete anonymity and considers mental health the core of overall wellbeing. ELNP Foundation provides research-based emotional support to individuals over phone, video discussions, forums and social media. All they need to do to get started is create a member account on the online platform https://www.eatluvnpray.org/.
Eat Luv N Pray has been co-founded by entrepreneurs – Sonia Arora Sood, Priyanka Wadhera and Manoj Agrawal – with a vision to create a holistic mental wellness virtual platform that allows users to simply log in and talk about issues with trained counsellors and informed experts. The platform helps users understand the seven dimensions of wellness and cover the entire cycle through their Eat Luv N Pray journey. The platform aims to touch at least 10 million lives and create for them a ‘Never Alone’ moment with the power of active listening.
Notably, the platform has in its panel a group of well qualified and experienced medical professionals such as psycho therapists and psychiatrists. The Eat Luv N Pray further aspires to create livelihoods for members of the inclusive category. Apart from these, any individual wanting to get trained and volunteer as a listener can reach out to the founders through the platform.
