Breaking Taboos and Promoting Mental Health Empowerment

Mental health empowerment will only come through understanding and recognizing the relationship between mental well-being and menstruation.

These hormonal changes can be managed positively by openly discussing them, setting up support systems as well as adopting holistic approaches in addressing women’s wellness challenges.

A society that acknowledges womanhood’s totality must first demystify stigma relating to reproductive health care.

Ms. Popli’s aim is to enlighten minds using the digital space to create an online environment where the unsaid becomes spoken. The first step towards nurturing holistic well-being is by breaking taboos.

Celebrating Menstruation: From Concealment to Dialogue

A Comprehensive Approach to Women’s Well-being

Ultimately, accepting the physical nature of female health involves discussing menstruation and mental illness.
