Oct 25th 2019:
The true spirit of Diwali is to share the light and warmth of the common people. So, on Dhanteras with the 14 Luit fellows and Mythili Hazarika, the President of the Society for Mental Health in LAMIC (SoMHiL) as a guest speaker is a unique experience worth sharing. The fellows scoring more than 90% in class Xth board exams are selected by “Manthan” through a four step process from economically disadvantaged families of rural or peri-urban areas. They have the potential and a keen desire to be fine professionals and give back to the community.
“Manthan” had invited Mythili Hazarika to address the various psychosocial risks and vulnerabilities of adolescence and how to build their resilience to reach their goals.
