For students who wish to develop the skills required to become a mental health influencer
A mental health ambassador is someone who is open about your own mental health experiences, promotes positive attitudes toward mental health, provides support to others who may be struggling and encourages them to seek professional help for enhancing mental well-being
In today’s world, the importance of mental health and mental well-being is still a challenge. When we talk of physical health and physical fitness, of late we have witnessed a paradigm shift in terms of giving importance to physical fitness. A large number of the population have started to take care of their physical fitness and are looking at taking preventive measures. However, in terms of mental health and mental well-being, it is still looked at as only a curative measure and not a preventive measure.
We in collaboration with ICHARS Support Foundation are looking at bringing that paradigm shift by bridging that gap and not waiting for a disorder to set in.
We aspire to do this by creating an army of mental health ambassadors who would help in spreading the message on the importance of mental health and mental well-being.
On the completion of the internship, you would receive a certificate mentioning the activities you have done as a Mental Health Ambassador during the period of the internship.
