The Meh Sessions

The Mithra (friend in Sanskrit) Trust was founded in 2018 to provide mental health services and tools in a way a trusted friend would.

During the lockdown in response to the rapid spread of COVID-19, we are offering the following, a webinar The Meh During Lockdown and two facilitated spaces online for self-expression and self-reflection – Let’s Discuss The Meh and Doodles For The Meh.

What is The Meh? It is an overwhelming feeling of emotions and thoughts – sadness, loneliness, worry, boredom, disconnection and so on. The Meh is a simple way to articulate that you’re not okay.
