ABOUT US

 
You’re Wonderful Project; started as a student run organization which believes in peer-counseling and motivating people towards betterment. We started with the idea of eliminating the practice of self-harm, self-mutilation, and the systemic increase in attempted suicide among young adults.
Our approach has now however, broadened, and the organization is now working towards the larger goal of mental health awareness and accessibility. It’s now an organization that is comprehensively trying to tackle the issues around mental health and working to remove the stigmas around the same.
We work to raise awareness, encourage acceptance of mental health difficulties, promote prevention and facilitate intervention. On-ground, we make this happen through a strong, research-oriented course of action. Our range of events, campaigns, and workshops all focus on the betterment of our community and their mental health. Our initiative is highly widespread and is available on many online forums such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well.
