The quiz format was designed to engage students and encourage them to gather greater awareness of psychology and concepts related to it. "We are engaging with the youth and creating this unique way of building an understanding pertaining to psychology and mental health. Mental Health is a lesser discussed subject and the educational fraternity should come together to sensitize the younger minds," said FMRI, director, Samir Parikh.
