We’re on a mission to transform how mental health is approached in the education system. Students face various challenges in their personal journeys and stress levels among them are at an all time high.

To tackle this through the right intervention at the right time looks like the perfect job for us! Our goal is to equip students with the right mindset to lead an emotionally healthy life.

Our Services

Through our services, we’ve adopted a holistic approach to mental health which enables us to view it from various stand points and lenses:

A 12 -hour
Helpline

The school teachers will be trained in emotional first aid and will be taught to identify early signs of mental health disorders and flag it to us, so we can work on the treatment and prevention.

We also help teachers learn appropriate responses to students who need special attention.

One on One
Consultation

All students are entitled to consultations held by a trained psychologist whether they opt for it, are referred by teachers/parents or the psychologist feels the need for the consultation. Counseling sessions will also be held for parents.

Teachers
Training

The school teachers will be trained in emotional first aid and will be taught to identify early signs of mental health disorders and flag it to us, so we can work on the treatment and prevention. We also help teachers learn appropriate responses to students who need special attention.

Modules

We’ve collaborated with CNTW and NHS to develop modules for each grade which will be delivered by psychologists.

These modules are built around our four principles: exploring self, interpersonal skills, dealing with emotions, understanding mental health.

To further the impact, we will organize fun-filled events to reinforce the importance of mental health and our content team will send out material to teachers, students and parents for them to understand their emotions better.

Focus
Groups

Our focus groups are conducted by trained psychologists and children are allotted to these groups based on an assessment of their current needs.

Approach!

When we step in, we ensure that there’s enough room for everyone’s needs - students, teachers and parents alike so no one is left behind. We don’t just cater to problems at an individual-level but assess how we can make a difference on a higher, group-level as well.Our programs are built on the philosophy of partnership which leads to effective crisis management!

Our Collaboration with

CNTW

The world is moving towards a healthier space in education and at Mindtalk we believe that we too must move in the same direction. As the only Indian mental health organization to be a knowledge partner with Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear (CNTW), NHS Foundation Trust, UK, we are truly bringing the world to Indian education.

In collaboration with CNTW, we have developed a comprehensive program whose only goal is to create a mentally and emotionally healthier environment in our educational spaces.

About

Cadabams

For over three decades Cadabams has been pioneering mental healthcare in India. We offer consultations, hospitalization, and rehabilitation for multiple mental health disorders. Over the years we spent treating a diverse range of mental health disorders, we noticed that the root cause of a lot of these issues lay in the childhood experiences of the person. To address this and to support our mission of preventive and promotive mental health, we believe that a school mental health curriculum devised by experts and administered by them in collaboration with schools is the way forward!
