CTSI – Call for volunteers!

Since May 2021, The CTSI has been actively engaged in the training of young volunteers from psychology and social work backgrounds in grief and trauma related work as part of their ongoing GoTN initiative – Grief and bereavement counselling helpline in partnership with the National Health Mission, Government of Tamil Nadu and The Banyan Academy of Leadership in Mental health (BALM). We are looking for more volunteers to join our team as tele mental health counselors for a minimum of two months. Proficiency in Tamil is mandatory. Those with masters in psychology/social work or with counseling experience are preferred. So far, we were able to reach out to almost 6000 members of the affected families, provide ongoing counseling sessions to 500 people, and conduct 38 debrief sessions with our volunteers. To register, follow this link – https://forms.office.com/r/5fZKHEwWvp. To know more about the program, write to namrata@balm.in
