Initiative to spread awareness about the importance of visiting a mental health practitioner even before reaching the stage of disorders and offer Peer Support for Practitioners with free training programs, structured mentorship and lot more.


Visit MHP challenge began as an idea to destigmatize mental health by taking an oath on social media to visit mental health practitioners when things got rough.

The founder of Visit MHP, Mr Nitin Shah, posted about mental well being on his account. This video contained the benefits of visiting a mental health practitioner. He then took an oath if he experienced any distress. He tagged five other mental health practitioners in the social media post.

The main objective of the challenge was to involve more and more people in this movement towards change.

The vision of the challenge was to build a safe community on by encouraging people to make public posts on their profiles about the pros of visiting a mental health practitioner, sharing their positive experiences, and motivating their friends to do the same.

Another aspect of Visit MHP is to promote the need for self-care and skill development among mental health practitioners. Mental health practitioners are not immune to having stress or being burnout. Professional impairment is also common among mental health professionals and can directly impact the work with their clients.

Visit MHP provides free support groups, training programs, peer learning sessions for practitioners as they also require support and mentorship. It also creates a safe space for psychologists to share their challenges and hardships along with getting guidance on overcoming the same.
