The programme architect, Prof. Shalini K. Sharma spoke on the magnitude of student problems in our universities; lack of training mechanisms to understand adolescents in our care or identify psychological problems in them early and what joy it gives us to share what we have learnt with the teachers through a four day workshop, for the 8th time in succession. She said that we are dedicating the first day entirely to various aspects of suicide; 2nd day to identifying a variety of Adolescent problems in professional colleges, 3rd and 4th day to working with students with empathy to maximize their capabilities through practice counseling sessions. The Chief Guest, Dr. Mohan Isaac praised our unique way of inauguration through assurance for a student who wanted to quit the course by the placement Executive and watering a Neem sapling. In his inaugural speech, he mentioned, as per his experience, in India, most of the institutions do not have counsellors on college campus and NMAMIT is the only institute that is taking it seriously. He conveyed gratitude to the institution, management and the Counsellor and Student Welfare Officer as this institution values students and education. The Principal, Dr. Niranjan N. Chilplunkar, in his presidential address, thanked the Chief guest for his appreciation of NMAMIT, Abhyuday’s work, thanked and congratulated the whole team and urged the teachers to use the opportunity to go beyond teaching well to understand students better and help them cope better with challenges in their life. A Neem sapling was watered by the Chief guest & others including a participant.

      Several audio visual aids like documentaries, short films, songs to illustrate adolescent behaviour & introduce concept of empathy, puzzles to stir up thinking were used to make the programme interesting and relevant. Students acted as counselees with problems based on college based case studies; they played the roles of teachers and students in class room situations to clearly depict unfair teacher behaviours that hurt adolescents thereby making discussion flow easily. In order to stay energized, focus better, push aside boredom and lethargy, the group was involved in simple yoga stretches before class in the morning and an energizing activity in the afternoon, post lunch. Listening comprehension activity showed them how they were really no different from the student crowd , all as a means of aiding development of understanding and compassion for young people under our care.

      A total of 38 participants - 15 faculty members from colleges outside; 5 from sister institutions and 18 from NMAMIT particpated in the workshop. Dr. Mohan Isaac, Professor of Psychiatry & Clinical Neurosciences, University of Western Australia and Fremantle Hospital, a distinguished world renowned Psychiatrist, in his key note address, spoke on ‘Why is adolescent mental health important?’ ‘Why is young India suicidal?’ and ‘What can be done?’ for these problems and urged the teachers to help the youngsters under their care.
