Faculty of Behavioural Sciences have signed an MOU with Round Glass Peace team. Round Glass Peace team have launched a program to start a mentorship program for all students of the university. Mentorship program includes training peer mentors in SGT and these peer mentors will be mental health ambassadors among students who will be able to spread this learning among fellow students and communities.
As a part of the program, various faculties were approached during the induction program for an orientation workshop about mentorship programme and creating awareness about youth mental health. One hour session on 2nd & 3rd of August in Faculty of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Agriculture, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Hotel Management, Faculty of Pharmacy, Faculty of Physical Sciences, Faculty of Allied health sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Commerce and Management and Faculty of Behavioural Science was organised for first-year students. The session was taken by Dr Dhaval Modi, Director, RoundGlass Peace and his team in different faculties. Similarly, on 6th and 7th of September, the workshop was held in Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Commerce, Faculty of Behavioural Sciences, Faculty of Pharmacy, and Faculty of Fashion for 2nd and 3rd-year students of Faculty.
Following orientation of program, the interested students have to fill the mentor application form and they will be selected through a mutually scheduled telephonic interview. The selected students will be trained and will have access to mailers and mobile app for the theme of the month like Aggression, Social Anxiety, Career Shaping etc. These mailers are scientifically structures to help students gain insights on various issues college students are prone to and how to respond to them thus improving coping skills.
