We educate and spread awareness about the HAZARDS OF STRESS and how it can lead to various consequences like substance abuse, depression leading to suicides, other psychiatric and psychological problems, if not checked in time. We also advocate that stress is preventable, only if people are aware of this fact and learn how to adaptively cope with the situations they face. We want to reach out to more and more people everywhere, and take our programme to the doorstep of the poorest of the poor. Technology is a boon and has provided leverage to this endeavour.
Students studying in a stress-free environment where they experience minimal school/ parental stress or expectations, and who manage to keep their own stress at bay, perform better in their studies and career’s. We strongly feel and believe that a stress-free person is a happy person who is more efficient and productive in his/her work. Thereby such people work more, work better, and hence can self-sustain themselves and their family by earning more. A stress –free society is a human resource, which is more productive in terms of it’s efficiency at work and this alleviates poverty from the society.OUR MOTTO
Shift from “Distress To De-Stress”
Mental illness is a scar on the face of all humanity, which alienates people from the main stream. The stigma associated with mental illness, makes matters worse for them. We try to heal this malady, together with our partners & supporters.
We will try to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UNDP of ‘Good Health and Well Being’ and ‘No Poverty‘ for all by 2030.
Prevention of stress and mental illness is a possibility today, with Awareness, Knowledge and Education. Psycho-education and Awareness are the key words.
We try to strengthen the emotional and mental well being of people, especially that of children and youth, in our project areas, so that there is a happy society.OUR MISSION
