Speek Out Loud is a registered charitable society under the Society Registration act of XXI of 1860 working for promoting mental health. We are a team of dedicated and well-qualified mental health students and professionals.



We conduct awareness campaigns, seminars, legal cell, counselling services and user’s groups in different places and cities in Kerala on mental health, and related aspects. While conducting these exercises, we are observing that only very few NGO’s are working actively for the betterment of the community of persons with mental illness and their families.

Our mission is to promote mental health and help persons with mental illness and their dependants and focus more on the implementation of programmes. Speak Out Loud can promote mental health and awareness about mental health in youth and establish greater participation of youth throughout all the colleges and universities of Kerala, which will almost cover more than 2000 students.
