Kashmir Lifeline

Kashmir Lifeline & Health Centre is an integrated mental health programme. The central ethos is that the best way to meet mental health challenges is with a combination of intelligently integrated treatment and educating the general public about mental health. Kashmir Lifeline supports people experiencing emotional and psychological distress in Srinagar and around the Kashmir valley providing therapeutic mental health care beyond limits of medication. We also provide mental health training and awareness programmes for primary health care providers (ICDS workers, ASHA workers and paramedics), school and university students.

Young Minds

Young Minds is a programme designed for children to help them understand their minds, and how they think. We are testing it in environments where it is hard for children to study and stay focused due to violence-related stress. The programme helps them to understand anxiety and stress, enabling them to manage it more effectively. For their families and them this is a foundational step towards a better quality of life. For the schools where we are running the programme it is a solid support in improving classroom behaviour and levels of concentration. It is effective and easy to implement.
