Mental health is a vital strand of every individual’s life. It includes subjective well-being, perceived self- efﬁcacy, autonomy, competence and recognition of the ability to realize one’s intellectual and emotional potentials. Mental health strengthens interpersonal relationships, increases productivity, and improves quality of life.
Acknowledging the need for mental health care facilities for its students, staff and outsiders, the university has developed a full-ﬂedged counselling facility, ‘Vivechana~ The Counselling Space’, a centre for psychological well-being.
Vivechana caters to ‘psychometric assessments’, ‘career counselling’ and ‘psychotherapy’ by professionals. In addition, relaxation and physiotherapy services are also available and this can help reduce muscle tension, pain states such as chronic headaches, chronic pain syndromes and work-related anxiety. Vivechana is open Wednesdays to Sundays as per the university calendar
