What We Do

Our Approach

Keeping mental wellbeing of children at the heart of the program, we seek to shape an ecosystem that provides trauma informed care by creating a shift in the network that operates for the wellbeing of children at risk. There are various modalities and techniques that we adopt in order to facilitate prevention and intervention models.

What we Do

Advocacy

I Am is rigorously working toward spreading awareness about the impact of trauma on behaviour. mental, and physical well-being of children.

The content is based on the internationally recognised concept of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and the effective protective strategies to mitigate the impact of traumatic events.

Udaan

We place a trained mental health professional in the Child Care Institutes (CCI). The role of this professional is to provide Individual and group therapy for all children.

We consider the role of a caregiver of utmost importance in the well-being of the child, hence great emphasis is laid on the self-care and mental well-being of all caregivers in the institution.

The team at I Am is supported through regular on-going supervision and in-service training.
