Ride to Mpower, an initiative by the Mpower Movement will be held on 11th March 2018 to bring to the forefront conversations on this issue.
Mrs. Neerja Birla, Founder and Chairperson, Mpower initiated the “It’s ok not to be ok” challenge holding a placard urging people to seek help when they feel something is not right! Rahul Bose was the first Bollywood celebrity to take up this challenge and put up a picture of himself with this placard.

The Mpower movement by Mrs. Neerja Birla has till date seen the support of business leaders, mental health activists, inspirational youth icons and city-based school children.
On supporting Ride to Mpower, Rahul Bose, said, “Mental health is often a topic perceived as a stigma. This prevents the topic to become a part of daily conversations. I’m happy to play a small role in getting more people to start talking about mental health and encourage everyone to seek help, because it’s ok not to be ok!”
We love seeing celebrities take up causes that need serious attention in society, today.
