Promoting mental health and self-awareness in children and youth

About Chetana Foundation

Chetana Foundation is a Mental Health promoting NGO with a holistic approach to mental health issues. It is our belief that working on preventive mental wellbeing of individuals and groups will lead to better adjusted individuals and a healthier society.

Chetana’s intervention started in 2003 with setting up of counseling units at 13 institutions in Navi Mumbai. The work involved imparting Life Skills training for secondary students in tandem with individual as well as group counseling of parents, students and teachers.

In 2003, came our first grant from the Education Department to conduct a workshop for 75 teachers in two municipal schools on child psychology, identification and referral of children with special needs and alternate teaching methodology.

Chetana Foundation subsequently has been engaging in preventive mental health interventions with institutions and organizations including NGOs in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Chandigarh, Assam, Nanded, Delhi, Ahmedabad and Baroda.
