Swayam – (Personal Counselling)
We provide personal counselling services to men, women as well as children. We also conduct projective testing such as the Thematic Apperception Test, Children’s Apperception Test, Draw a Person Test, Kinetic Family Drawing, etc. to help in planned, focused, and wholesome individual based therapy.
Saath – (Caregiver Counselling)
When it comes to individuals who suffer from severe health issues, it is their loved ones who suffer the most. Most often, we forget that while the patient suffers an illness, it is the caregivers who have to deal with the stress of the situation. Sometimes caregivers have to be alert and vigilant all times of the day and night to ensure the wellbeing of the patient. This makes caregivers susceptible to anxiety, depression and other forms of mental illnesses. Most often they hardly understand the situation and rarely know how to deal with it.
The Saath program conducts support groups with caregivers of different mental and physical health issues. We build a support system, which enhances a caregiver’s strength to cope with the situation. The program helps caregivers understand themselves and their situations better by creating a space where members find support and encouragement from people going through similar situations. A group usually consists of 5 to 12 individuals who are taking care of patients of the same health issues. Sessions are conducted with the caregivers on themes that are most relevant to them such as guilt, anger, frustration, communication, etc., with the sole goal to address their mental health issues. The Saath program focuses entirely on maintaining the mental health of the caregiver, so that they are better equipped to take care of their patient.
Sahit – (Stakeholder Engagement)
Mental Health affects every part of an individual’s life. It influences our confidence and productivity. While the individual understands this and is working towards his/her own betterment, it is also important that their surroundings are made conducive for their wellbeing. It is important that organizations, corporate agencies and the government take an active role in providing a safe and nurturing environment for every individual. This can be made possible only with collaborative efforts between the government, corporate agencies, the education system etc and mental health professionals.
Adveka extends the Swayam and Saath programs towards these stakeholders. These programs help the stakeholders understand and create a conducive environment to maintain every individual’s mental health. We work closely with schools, hospitals, doctors, NGOs, corporates and similar organizations. We provide trainings, workshops, and counseling as well as follow up services.
