KIMS Hospital (July 2020)

~I took remote training from hospital workers on dealing with mental health issues related to Covid-19 and provided a safe space for discharged patients and their families to share anxieties and stress about the virus. I counseled them to alleviate their worries and ease their concerns in a calm and collected manner.

Project on Mental Health (January-February 2020)

~I designed a project for CAS activity on mental health issues for underprivileged children. I invited prominent Psychologists and Psychiatrists to talk about the importance of mental health in government schools. The aim of the project is to provide a safe space for the children to address abuse and other issues (faced at home) with the professionals. Due to the pandemic, the project was put on hold, but the report was passed on to the incoming batch at Chirec International School.
