Theme: Mind and Matter
"Mind and Matter" bring focus on how the internal and external forces blend to shape one's life. "Mind" talks about identifying and confronting the internal factors, while "Matter" focuses on the external factors. Mental health, which is relevant for every individual, is often influenced by these forces. Mental health refers to our emotional, psychological, and social well-being, and is influenced by how we interact and react to our environment. Addressing it is the need of the hour, especially in a B-school, where it is common for mental health issues to manifest. There are two perspectives through which it can be addressed.
