Intake appointments are scheduled with students at times and dates which are convenient to them, depending on their academic commitments.
In either case, the goal of the first meeting is to help the student identify the issues that are causing them the most concern.
If a student wishes to continue in counselling, he/she usually continues to meet with the same counsellor seen in intake or Walk-In.
2. Psychological Assessment
In some cases where more precise diagnoses are required, we conduct psychological assessments. These tests are administered by a trained psychometrician. These tests help all those who are concerned with the student’s wellbeing to decide upon the best possible intervention.
3. Workshops and Events
The Wellness centre also organizes different workshops and events during each academic year. The workshops and events are organized on different topics related to mental health and are based on the need of the students like dealing with stress, time management, relationship issues etc.
At the beginning of each academic year we have workshops for the 1st year students, like EQ101 (Emotional Quotient toolkit). We also have a training program for mentors where effective mentoring skills are demonstrated and sharpened; updates of which can be seen on www.facebook.com/icareiitb.
The team organizes various events on occasions like Mental Health Day, International Happiness Day and World Suicide Prevention Day.
