Celebrating OUR JOURNEY so far…

On 9th December, 2023, Mental Health Foundation, Kolkata (mhfkolkata.com) celebrated their journey of more than a decade of reaching out to those in need of mental health support, treatment and advocacy. That evening, as a team, we got a chance to say thank you to many of those who have supported us since our inception. We had the privilege of listening to two extraordinary human beings, Mr. Dhritiman Mukherjee, internationally celebrated explorer, conservationist and wildlife photographer and Mr. Shantanu Moitra, a national award winning music composer, photographer and adventurer on their experiences and wisdom of seeing the world through a different lens. They connected the dots between nature, art, environment, wildlife and mental health and we cannot be more grateful to these two incredibly generous people and also to all those who have been with us over the years.
