Description

When it comes to mental health, phrases like these are the usual suspects: “Walk it off,” “It’s all in your head,” “Just think happy thoughts.” We certainly wish it were that easy. Hosted by Zain Calcuttawala and Avanti Malhotra, 'Marbles Lost & Found' is a podcast to raise awareness about mental health and its importance in our day to day life. We want everyone to know that mental health care, just like physical health care, is actually normal. It’s okay to not feel okay, you aren’t alone…in fact you’d be surprised how many people feel the way you feel.

This is a very difficult time full of uncertainty for everyone around the world. And many of us, of course while luckier than others, do feel the anxiety of it all: What will happen next? Will we be okay? How do I deal with isolation for at least 3 weeks? These are all valid questions and all of us are thinking them, and maybe there aren't any definitive answers. Avanti and Zain speak about how they are dealing with the situation, address concerns that their listeners have voiced, and ways we can help those less fortunate. We are all in this together.You can follow the Marbles Lost & Found Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/marbleslostandfound/Note: The Marbles Lost & Found team strongly recommends seeking professional mental health treatment to anyone who feels they might need it.You can listen to this show and other awesome shows on the IVM Podcasts app on Android: https://ivm.today/android or iOS: https://ivm.today/ios, or any other podcast app.Check out our website at http://www.ivmpodcasts.com/
