Cinema can be used to make people aware of mental health problems
The second day of the 21st World Congress of Mental Health had discussions on cinema and mental health.
The sessions discussed on how cinema can help in creating awareness on mental health issues.
Storytelling in films are a way to provide education and awareness at a more personal level.
Regular exercise and a focus on staying fit is good for the body and also can help to overcome mental health problems such as depression, anxiety.
