#YehDiwaliBachchonWaali: United We Care bats for mental health

The campaign launched across various platforms encourages adults to open up & talk.

NEW DELHI: This Diwali, United We Care is encouraging people to let out their inner child and share their stories and experiences. The integrated campaign called #YehDiwaliBachchonWaali, launched across various digital platforms, focuses on bringing back the carefree childhood days as well as being able to have some heart-to-heart conversations. The underlying idea is to encourage adults to talk openly without inhibitions.  

Given how Diwali coincides with Children's Day this year, the campaign highlights the essence of childhood and encourages adults to open up. The first video talks about how we express ourselves easily as children, share and forget easily. As we grow up, we are bound by the worry of stigma, judgement, and overthinking. It stems from the concept of gifting everyone better mental health and well-being during the festive season by unleashing the unabashed and hopeful spirit of the child within each of us.

The campaign also introduces a team of experts including life coaches, psychologists, and lawyers who share their childhood experiences that led them to take up the professions they are in today. For instance, a lawyer who saw her father losing a land case as a child decided to take up the profession to ensure no one else undergoes the same experience. Right after she became a lawyer, she helped her father win the case. As they narrate their stories, they also “Pledge to Create a Happier You” with United We Care.

United We Care founder  Shumita Kakkar said apart from Covid2019, people are also experiencing a second pandemic in the form of mental health issues. However, these issues are not new but have been there since ages. “Today, when things are so complicated, it is time once again to rewind to our childhood, a time of free spirits, endless conversations, and when every day was a new beginning. United We Care’s campaign this Diwali is about unleashing your inner child and speak up openly about anything under the sun – without the fear of stigma and for better mental health.”

United We Care is an app-based platform that integrates social, mental, financial, and legal support systems for men, women, youth and children and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
