Ever wanted to talk about your mental health but didn’t know how? Well, this cafe in Mohali by Angel D’Souza has been set up with an aim to give people a head start. 

The 21-year-old Psychology student started a cafe that offers therapy and a place for people to talk about their mental health, while seeking help.  

Angel shared that it was 3 Idiots and the death of a student in the film, that inspired her to talk about mental health. 

I always knew I wanted to start some kind of helpline for people who are lonely, sad, or have nobody to talk to. I want to normalise talking about mental health. There’s still so much stigma around it. 

-Angel told VICE

Called Your Sugar Daddy, this mental health cafe with an eye catching name is a pet friendly cafe with a ‘Mental health wall of positivity’ that aims to make people feel good. 

The cafe will soon begin offering dog therapy and art therapy sessions to provide a wholesome experience. 

People can come here, talk about their mental health issues and take part in the various therapies offered here. It is also a pet-friendly cafe, anyone can come to eat, laugh and heal here.

-Angel told Indian Express
