In collaboration with Sangath under their programme, PRIDE, TYPF launched a new initiative on mental health in 2017. Paagal Hai Kya? currently works as a 2-day long workshop with young people and adolescents.
The mental health project is culminating in an event on youth mental health, sexuality, gender, and self-care on 12 March. Check out details here!
Between 2016-18, the project has worked with over 200 young people across Delhi and Lucknow between the ages of 13-25 from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
Each workshop has had a different focus point depending on the age group and needs of the participants. The curriculum of the programme has benefited immensely from these experiences and has since undergone further development and refining!
Paagal Hai Kya was piloted in an English-medium school in New Delhi between January-March 2017, where it worked with people between the ages of 13-14 years. The curriculum covered a wide range of issues including peer pressure, bullying, and everyday problems that affect our mental well being.
