Dr JPS Bakshi, Founder, Kaleidoscope stated, “We are happy to associate with Inkclick to create a platform that fosters a healthy childhood for the kids. While the pandemic has taken a toll on the emotional health of children due to lack of social interactions and limited understanding of the restrictions imposed on them, it has also radically altered conventional routines now that the entire family is confined indoors all the time. This collaboration –is an opportunity to address behavioural and emotional problems arising out of this difficult time to ensure inclusive growth for our kids.”
“It is unnatural for adults and children alike – peer interaction is healthy. Social distancing should not lead to social isolation”, he further added.
As per the Indian Psychiatry Society, there was a hike of about 20% in the number of mental illness cases at the end of March 2020. Since 2020, situation has become even worse. Students have been going through depressive thoughts, behavioural and emotional disorders, which have severely impacted their growth parameters. Considering these circumstances, Inkclick and Kaleidoscope will allow the students to combat mental health challenges such as anger management, depression, anxiety and other concomitant emotions.
