On this World Mental Health Day, Hindustan Zinc extended a heartfelt invitation to join in a profoundly heart touching journey of empathy, compassion, and understanding through its #ReachOut campaign. In alignment with the global theme, ‘Mental Health is a universal right’, as set forth by the World Health Organization, the company embarked on a mission to create ripples of change that touch the depths of the human heart.
At its core, the #ReachOut campaign is based on the heartrending narrative that compels everyone to choose kindness over judgment, understanding over ignorance and love over indifference when it comes to mental health, both for themselves and those around them. It seeks to educate and enlighten, using engaging internal on-ground campaign with awareness webinars, surveys, postcards, employee wellness awareness programs and a soul-stirring film that beckons viewers to look beyond the surface.
