Project Baglung is a major project of Sambhavya Foundation initiated in the year 2021. This project falls under the banner of ‘One School, One Mental Health Counselor’, where one school will be provided at least one school mental health counselor, and proves as a targeted area for ‘Counseling Room’ development.
The initial phase of Project Baglung was an orientation program hosted in 7 schools within Galkot Municipality. The entire program was undertaken by Counselors and Counseling Psychologists of Sambhavya Foundation and was conducted from 19th of January, 2021 to 22nd of January 2021. The program was directed towards the students of selected schools primarily and secondarily to the teachers. The program was held in an awareness provision setting with students on topics such as mental health, psycho-social well-being, stress management and discussions on problems related to studies while the program with teachers was orientation regarding Sambhavya Foundation and its counseling program and Focused Group Discussion.
The orientation program was also designed in order to survey the prevalent issues in the selected schools and the level of awareness regarding mental health. This, allows us to design our school mental health program accordingly, as the program was successful in the orienting our targets as they requested for the program to sustainably run in coming days.
