Right from his Post graduation days Dr. Madhusudan has been active in the domain of spreading mental health awareness and reduction of the stigma attached to it. His understanding of the gravity of this issue and the desire to do something good about it reflects in his well known video song “phool kho gaye”
He has conducted several mental health awareness seminars and interactive sessions for Patients and caregivers and community people in general.

His excellent and simple way of communicating the ideas as well as use of his own produced video song presentations during these seminars leave a lasting impact on the listeners thus helping to bring about the much needed positive change in the attitude of people towards psychiatric illnesses and people undergoing psychiatric treatment.
These days he is conducting such interactive seminars in various schools and institutions in Delhi as he believes “These young people and children are the future parents, doctors ,engineers and policy makers, if they are sensitized towards mental health, that can bring a lasting change in the dismal scenario”.
