Psychbigyaan Team visited Pokhara with their school program from Feburary 16 – Feburary 20 for ‘PESH (Psychological, Emotional, Social,  Health Education’. The visit was coordinated and sponsored by Sansar Nepal, NGO that is supporting children for education and skills. Psychbigyaan Team comprising Kripa Sigdel, Sujan Shrestha and Ashish Kafle had completed two workshops on two different schools and one workshop to teachers in their Pokhara stay. The module of the session was designed, developed and put in action by team themselves.

The major goals of PESH Education developed by PNN for schools were:

This programme was awesome. We learnt many things related to our aim, adolescent. We learnt that how to achieve goal in our life or in future. So this program should be held in other schools too.

‘’We need Counselors in Every School’’- This has always been one of the major belief of Psychbigyaan team.

With the motive of awaring students about transition and letting them know about Psychology and Mental Health, Psychbigyaan team Kripa Sigdel, Sujan Shrestha and Sanjeev Bhandari visited a school named ‘’Gyan Bhumi Secondary School’’ of Futung Nagarpalika, Kathmandu on Sunday, 14 December.

The team gave information to the 55 students of class 9 and 10 for 2 hours. The program combined the information sharing, games, Psychological tests, motivational tips, meditation, relaxation techniques and question and answer round. This made students not feel bore despite long class hours. Also, being Psychology Graduates, Psychbigyaan team created a friendly information sharing session for students which made students to enjoy and receive the information with fun.
Firstly, the sessons started with the introduction of the team, Psychbigyaan and whole class. Then Sujan Shreshta talked about transition, identity crisis and many psychological aspects of that age. He also mentioned about identity and identity crisis in teenagers. He also explained the confusions and how to minimize it. He also talked about the dangers of falling into the bad trap of drugs due to the stress , anxiety and peer pressure in that age group. He made them aware about the psychological problem taking toll on young people’s mind and about increasing suicidal rate among the teens.Then the team conducted WAT (psychological tests ) to the students. It was a fun session.

Team also motivated students to challenge and put their strong foot forward.

Then, Sanjeev Bhandari,explained how important is positive thinking. He talked about 6 important steps improving life. Those were vision, visualization, oxygenation, auto-suggestion, celebration and action. He also conducted a minute relaxation session for students.
