Schools play a crucial role in the holistic development of the child. It is an ideal environment where we can enhance the social and emotional wellbeing of the students. By social and emotional wellbeing we mean, ability to manage emotions well, grow up to be confident individuals, able to deal with challenges effectively, have adequate intra and interpersonal skills and to enhance resilience.
Objective of our School Wellness Programs
Outline of our program
Our program works with the primary stakeholders by addressing students, parents and teachers, by orienting them to various aspects of mental wellness. We collaborate with the schools and work with them based on the requirements of the schools or throughout the academic year as well. Our program is based on the four foundation pillars which are exploring self, interpersonal skills, dealing with emotions and understanding mental illnesses.
Keeping in mind the four foundation pillars, we work towards enhancing children’s mental well-being which also caters to their academic, social and overall well-being. Following is the breakdown of how we deliver our school mental health programs.
We work with students at both individual and group level at their school premises. Our team provides students with support, guidance, nurturance and resources throughout the academic year. The objective of this individual session is for early identification of mental health issues. This helps break stigma barriers and makes the child more comfortable to reach out to a counselor in times of crisis. For the group sessions, we address various areas of emotional wellness and concern areas common for children of that age group. Some of the topics that we work on are:
And many more.

Parent Awareness Programs

This equips the parents with coping skills for themselves and for their children. Some of the common topics that we present parents with are:
