WHAT IS THE THERAPY PROJECT
In the last 2 years, Yuvaa has travelled to 35+ cities, 100+ colleges, met and listened to over 10,000 young people, and found the loneliest generation of young Indians. During the COVID19 pandemic, hundreds of students who have graduated in 2020 into the worst economic, financial, and global health crisis in their lifetimes, spoke to us about dealing with a pandemic of poor mental health too.
In India, there is still a stigma around therapy, and even for those who know of it, it can be very expensive. The Yuvaa Therapy Project, in association with our mental health partner, InnerHour, aims to normalise therapy and help students from the batch of 2020 get access to free therapy sessions from trusted practitioners.
On October 10, World Mental Health Day, Yuvaa makes a commitment towards providing free therapy sessions to the batch of 2020 to ensure young people who want access to therapy can get it without having to worry about how much it costs. This initiative is in support of the World Federation for Mental Health’s theme for 2020, of Greater Investment, Greater Access for Everyone, Everywhere.
HOW THE THERAPY PROJECT WORKS?
We are a socially conscious youth media company that aims to empower young people through entertainment online and creating campus communities offline. Over the last two years, through our flagship offline programme, The Yuvaa Roadshow of Kindness, we have been to over 100+ colleges across 35+ cities and listened to and engaged with over 10,000+ young people. We strive to create impact, and be the voice of youth!
