WADALA, OCTOBER 11, 2010: As the world celebrates ‘WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY’, Shelter Don Bosco also organized a small session inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Ajoy Fernandes sdb along with Dr. Rahul Ghadge a Neuro Psychiatrist, a volunteer with Don Bosco Shelter, at 10am.
Fr Ajoy appreciated the initiative taken by the management and the staff for the mental health of the boys, and gave the message that a visit to the counselor or to the psychologist should be as casual as a visit to the physician. Dr. Rahul impressed on the minds of the boys that physical health was very much related to the healthy mind of the person. He highlighted this through his PowerPoint presentation. Positive response was very evident on the faces of the children because there was good interaction between the doctor and shelter boys. He gave the following Mantra to the boys:
“MAN KI SHAKTI, TAN KI SHAKTI”
(Strength of the body lies in a healthy mind)
