Fastrack, the youth fashion and tech brand, has launched ‘Unwind’- a mental health pitstop, as part of its efforts to support and demystify conversations around mental health amongst the younger generation.

Unwind aims at making conversations around mental health more open and providing support and resources.

Fastrack launched the campaign with the introduction of Unwind microsite which opens up a space of acceptance and also offers an accessible guide on different issues around mental health and therapy.

The brand has partnered with Yuvaa, a youth media organisation for the initiative. The brand also collaborated with The Artidote, a platform dedicated to discussing emotions with art, to host The Artidote Moment which is essentially a gathering with the purpose to unwind together and have conversations in Bengaluru and Mumbai.

Ajay Maurya, Marketing Head, Fastrack, said, “As a brand for the youth Fastrack has always been concerned with the issues relevant to their audiences. The role of the brand has been to validate the experiences of the youth of today, the Gen Z, and be their ally in their explorations, concerns, and celebrations. Therefore, through Fastrack Unwind we present a safe and open space with the help of experts and partnerships to achieve the goal of making Mental Health Resources accessible to the youth of this country. With Unwind we introduce a mental health pitstop, a one-stop repository which becomes a space for conversations, resources, and community.”

Fastrack Unwind addresses a variety of topics through an interactive medium, thus simplifying the rather difficult subject matters related to mental well-being including Anxiety, ADHD, Academic pressure, Depression, etc.

Fastrack Unwind initiative also offers 500-hours of free online therapy sessions to its audiences in association with MindPeers, with the intention of encouraging more and more people to open up and normalise seeking professional help.
