Visit MHP Initiative
An initiative to create a shift in the perception around visiting a mental health practitioner from overcoming psychological disorders to achieving and sustaining mental emotional and behavioral wellbeing.
The focus is to encourage people to take a pledge to seek professional support to sustain wellbeing instead of waiting for a psychological disorder.
Youth for Emotional Support is an important initiative that focuses on training youth with two primary skills that support the creation and sustenance of a happier, healthier society. These skills include
- Managing their own thoughts and emotions
- Providing emotional first aid to friends and family
MEHAK (Mental and Emotional Health Awareness through Knowledge) is an initiative to facilitate the destigmatizing of mental health and creating awareness about the importance of mental health along with the most effective ways to stay emotionally and mentally healthy.

IT IS TIME THAT WE WORK TOGETHER TO CHANGE THIS
With your help
We have worked with more than 25,000 beneficiaries
Since its incorporation in December 2018, ICHARS Support Foundation has been able to support a large number of people through a variety of innovative and highly effective methods. These include one-to-one counselling sessions, group therapy sessions, talk-it-out groups, workshops, knowledge series and tie-ups with other NGOs

Working together enables us to reach out to a wider audience and focus on what we specialize in. Over the years we have worked with multiple NGOs with an objective to either help them offer mental health services to their beneficiaries or to be able to spread the word about their work.
