Activity Report For February 2023

ICHARS Support Foundation is a non-profit arm of ICHARS, Institute of Clinical Hypnosis And Related Sciences, focusing on promoting the mental health CASE – “Bringing about Change through Awareness, Support, and Education.” Our work is based on the belief that by raising public awareness, educating communities, and equipping every person with the right tools, we can foster optimal mental health.

We have weekly Support Groups, namely: The talk it out Support Group, a safe space for people to vent out their emotions, and the Psychologist Support Group, a peer learning space where practitioners from the field of Psychology meet every week and have case discussions, share tips, and techniques with the fellow members of the group.
ICHARS Support Foundation has also initiated “The VisitMHP challenge”, an initiative that focuses on requesting people to seek help for better mental health before it’s too late.
