Eupheus Learning, a Delhi based EdTech start-up and the Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, Fortis Healthcare, have joined hands to spread awareness about the human psychology issue.
Dr. Samir Parikh, director, Department of Mental Health and Behavioral sciences, Fortis Healthcare, conceptualized PsychEd2018 India’s only National Psychology Quiz for school students. This quiz aims to cultivate an interest in young minds for the field of psychology and promote awareness around mental health issues nationally. Last year, the event had 460 schools from 90 cities across India. Here 1380 students participated for the online round alone.
Being knowledge partners for the contest, Eupheus Learning will be running pre-event contests on their Facebook page to promote the quiz. Together, they will also hold Facebook live sessions of 30 minute each where mental health experts from Fortis Healthcare will elaborately cover topics related to education and mental health.
“Given the recent incidents being highlighted in the media, regarding mental health concerns; it has become our endeavour to reach out to the young population of the country and help them know about psychology and take care of their mental health. Psych-Ed is an engaging platform along with Eupheus Learning which is connected around 1700 schools and enables us to engage an even larger number students this year, said Dr. Parikh.
“We are actively seeking association with events that give students a novel opportunity of enhancing their understanding beyond textbooks. Our association with Fortis Healthcare syncs well with what we are trying to achieve for the future. The next generation of young minds needs to be made aware as well as given support regarding mental health issues that are rampant, said Sarvesh Shrivastava, co-founder and MD, Eupheus Learning.
