Our Organisation

Get to know our backstory & why we initiated Minda

Our logo

The word minda is the Malay word for mind – the focus of our initiative: the health of the mind

The spiralled ‘I’ represents one’s entangled thoughts and emotions

Blue and green hues represent peace & tranquility

The alpha α represents the alpha brainwave which occur when we are relaxed: a kind of peace we all hope to enjoy

“When we find our lives spiraling down, remember that springs are spirals too. 

And like a spring, we will bounce back up again.”
