Why Nurturing Mental Health is Important?
The World Health Organization (WHO) conceptualises mental health as a “state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and can make a contribution to his or her community”.
Nurturing our mental health enables us to live our lives to our full potential. The upkeep of our mental health is foundational to having meaningful social connections, building relationships, having positive self-esteem and developing confidence and resilience to navigate life's ups and downs.
Mental health is also mainly approached from a remedial perspective, a reactive approach offering therapeutic solutions once a person experiences some form of mental illness.
Recent Mental Health statistics suggest that one in five Australians will experience mental or behavioural conditions each year. According to this survey, people aged between 16-34 are at a higher risk. Read the full blog here.
Our aim at MINDKSHETRA is to disrupt this reactive approach and provide proactive, creative art strategies and evidence-based neuroscience and art therapy-based strategies to take stock of mental hygiene to boost and sustain wellness.

Cultural Immersion Programs
Research shows that our cultural identity intrinsically influences our mental health and sense of connectedness with self and others. Engaging with cultural art practices provides a great avenue to connect with a deeper part of selves and integrate our human experience.
Mindkshetra is also invested in promoting local cultural artists and collaborates with various local artists to promote their work.
Run in partnership with local Indian folk, Origami, Calligraphy and Indigenous artists, Culturally Creative Me workshops are run during school term and offer immersive culture experiences. At the end of the term, the participants are invited to showcase their work through a studio organised exhibition.
