Sambhavya Foundation is a team of dedicated and enthusiastic school counselors, pursuits in MA Clinical Psychology and counseling psychologists glued together with a common goal of supporting education system through psychological counseling services. It is an organization established with an aim to provide mental health counseling services to everyone, especially focused on schools. To obtain these goals, Sambhavya Foundation deploys counselors to schools contracted to, for a year, where subject matters like emotional, academic, behavioral and social awareness and problems are addressed and tackled. Sambhavya Foundation works with schools in and out of Kathmandu Valley.
Established in the year 2018, centered around the idea of school counseling, this institute has been working its way towards its goal of encouraging mental well-being of every student of Nepal, reaching the most underprivileged and rural parts of the country. The approaches inclusive of group and individual counseling services within the boundaries of schools provide a healthy environment for school children to express themselves. Such strategies have been proven the most efficient in attaining a goal of adjustment and positive outlook of self and obstacles in life of students. In order to ensure these results are reached, Sambhavya Foundation continues these programs in a weekly basis for a year that includes follow ups and holistic programs with the involvement of concerned parties: Teachers, Administration and Guardians.
Sambhavya Foundation is currently working within and outside valley with a couple of schools, some run in collaboration with other organizations.
To promote mental well-being and mental health awareness throughout the country. Ensuring outreach to each individual, aids in reducing stigmas related to mental illness and legitimizes mental health to be taken seriously. A scenario of prevention and treatment of mental illness without obstacles is what Sambhavya Foundation seeks to create.
As we have always said, “We stand to understand”, we follow up these words in our professional and ethical grounds as well. The notion of empathy is the basis of modern human psychology and Sambhavya Foundation has structured its values, operations and agendas accordingly.
Initially, Sambhavya Foundation associated itself with schools outside of Kathmandu valley, specifically, Sindhupalchowk district. The services provided, was centered on school counseling to promote psycho- social well-being of students and teachers. Throughout the time period of 6 months however, Sambhavya Foundation noticed communal awareness regarding mental health through teachers and parents of the students. This new observation led to a development of organizational motives influenced by holistic method of counseling where through schools, teachers and parents, a community level well-being is to be achieved.
Sambhavya Foundation was aware that psycho-social intervention outside of urban areas were equally, if not, more important. Hence, an initiation was taken to provide ‘an empathetic ear’ to the far outreach of the whole nation. In other words, Sambhavya Foundation aimed to reach every school possible in Nepal.
Through a culmination of trial and errors and progressive evolution of goals, Sambhavya Foundation ambitiously visualizes psychosocial intervention for everyone.
