She has a constant interest always being in counseling as counseling can help people to develop and improve their lives. Aranyaka Mallick has always thought and worried about the idea that why people don’t know about counseling, why mental health is not so important to people? Maybe because due to the lack of awareness or understanding. But slowly with time it is gaining importance as mental health is as important as physical health. She believes that when a person has a cold/fever, s/he can visit a doctor in the same way if a person is feeling low, have some personal issues in life, is experiencing some anxiety, or any other why he/she can’t meet someone?

It is very important to have healthy and positive mental health as people are facing different challenges in their day to day life.
