‘We Listen’ (Hami-Sunchhau)

What is ‘We Listen’ (Hami-Sunchhau)’?

We Listen is the name of the free of cost Psycho-social service provided for targeted beneficiaries with a strong chain of referral on behalf of PNN. IT is the voluntary initiation of Psychibigyaan Network Nepal (PNN) where we will try to be ear to everyone who wants to speak out. We believe most of the problem arises when we do not have any one listening to us actively, and here we try to be that ‘ear’ whom you can reach out if you have any problem.

Our initiations for ‘We Listen (हामी- सुन्छौ)’ :

  • We Listen-Space: A space where targeted beneficiaries can directly come and have individual session.
  • We Listen-Phone Hours: Time when targeted beneficiaries can call and take the service if they want to. (Coming soon)

Why We Listen?

Most of the problem arises when we do not have anyone to talk to. Also identifying the problem, stressors, challenges or mental condition is another challenge in finding way out in Mental health or Psychological problem. When vaiours mental health issues are sky-rocketing, we believe being somebody listening to non-judgmentally and under confidentiality bided by Psychological ethics, we can be a help to someone in need.

Here, ‘We Listen’ will be a program of our organization where we will give an empathetic space to everyone to share whatever problem they are going through.

Background:

  • We started We-Listen (Hami-Sunchhau) just after Earthquake in Tudhikhel to listen to people who are in need (especially psychological need and others aswell) to help them as per our capacity, to refer them to the professionals and bridge the gap between those people who weren’t listened to the necessary help. We-Listen program was well-received then. This encouraged us to be an ear to many others and we are working in this since then.
    Now, we are coming with ‘We-Listen Space’ aswell. Stay updated. Feedback would be appreciated.

Post Earthquake- 2015/April-25, Psychbigyaan team has been doing various works related to children and adolescents.
In continuation to that, we are starting our new campaign called ‘Hami Sunchhau-We Listen’ from June 10 for 15 days in Tudhikhel, one of the largest open space in Kathmandu, where hundreds of affected people are staying in tents post Earthquake.

This campaign uses technique called ‘Active Listening’ and provides initial psycho social support to the affected ones. Also this campaign is supposed to be used and be helpful to caregivers, volunteers, army personnel around there. Our target groups are mostly adults, youths and care givers. We will be using ‘Active Listening technique’ and ‘Solution Focused Approach’ while handling the sessions there. And in case of severe problems, we are interested to link them to the professional and help them as needed.

Please give listen to our Podcast to know more about our Campaign. Podcast gives information about The Campaign, Target Group, Benefits of this Program, Expectations and Outcomes, etc.
