Vadodara Students Participate in Mental Health and Emotional Management Workshop

On Wednesday, July 4th, summer fellow Abigail Warren and social worker Foram Chaudbry went to The Bright Day School in Vadodara to deliver a presentation they have curated to 40 eighth grade students. By educating the students on mental health and emotional management, Warren hopes to make it easier for students to realize that it’s normal to feel stressed from the pressures of school, their families etc and learn how to deal with issues rather than letting them become a great part of their lives.

Responses to the mindfulness activities and educational presentation were extremely positive. Teacher Vidya Sudhish reported that the activities conducted “really helped the students to value themselves and others.” The session worked to achieve MINDS’s goal of spreading awareness surrounding mental health; Headmistress Rashana Shah said that the it increased both her and the students’ knowledge on mental health “which will indirectly help all of us to deal with stress or sadness in our daily routines.” The pair hopes to reach more of the urban population around Vadodara and will be visiting more schools in the coming month.pic13
