Shikshaantra Plus Mental Health and
Education Programme

The SMHEAP programme from KHUSHII works to promote the physical, psychological and social development of children. We focus on holistic development of children including the challenges of academic performance and mental wellbeing. The programme includes career counseling along with personal and social development development of students and teacher capacity building. The benefit reaches all important stakeholders – students, teachers and parents and helps reduce the risk of dropouts.


SMHEAP has significantly helped in removing barriers to academic achievement for children; creating a supportive social and emotional environment in schools; and guiding both teachers and children towards career readiness for the children.
