An Initiative towards Social-Emotional Well-Being in Schools

"A good educational institution is one in which every student feels welcomed and cared for…"

Vision Behind the Initiative

Founder's Thoughts

“During my time at IIT Bombay, I saw some of my closest friends struggle with depression, and I always tried to support them. This motivated me to research and work towards social-emotional well-being and resilience. It is very crucial for us, teachers, to connect with our students, understand them and support them for better student well-being."
