Workshop on First Aid for Mental Health Problems

The Department of Mental Health Education organises workshops on the topic ‘First Aid for Mental health problems’ once every two months. The first of its kind in India, we aim to teach how to identify, approach and further refer individuals going through mental health issues and crises in the context of everyday life, in an interactive manner. The Department also organises a ‘Training of the Trainers (TOT)’ workshop periodically, wherein we train individuals on how to conduct workshops on the same topic, by themselves. The long term goal of this workshop series is to educate people from varied areas of life, to come together and form a network of individuals that creates awareness and spreads knowledge about mental health and its first aid.
