The approaches inclusive of group and individual counseling services within the boundaries of schools provide a healthy environment for school children to express themselves.

DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Ashish Shrestha

Executive Director

“School mental health addresses all aspects of social-emotional development of school-age children including wellness, mental illness, substance abuse, and effects of adverse childhood experiences. There is little data available regarding what provision is available, the focus and priorities of schools and the professionals involved in providing this support. 10–20% of school
students have a mental health problem of some type.

Manifestations such as attention deficits, cognitive disturbances, lack of motivation, and negative mood all adversely affect scholastic development. As there is minimal provision of
school mental health services in schools of Nepal, less emphasis is given on this school
mental health service though government have started the policy of school mental health
counselors.

Sambhavya Foundation aims to support school administration, educators and teachers for the
intervention of these particular problems within schools and in the community for the better
foundation of student’s well-being and mental health for their better future. “
