We started MANOTSAV with a vision to make the community in general and public education system in specific conducive to the mental health needs of children and adolescents. Additionally, given a dearth of trained mental health professionals and specialist services for this population, it felt imperative to start a service that provided clinical care and offered public health measures to promote children’s socio-emotional development, prevent mental health issues and address the current challenges in this sector.
Create awareness in the community about mental health problems that children and adolescents experience.
Create adequate knowledge base about the early warning signs of mental health problems in youth and venues to get help amongst those dealing with this population.
Provide comprehensive clinical services for children and adolescent mental health issues.
