Our mission is to address the mental health needs of the IISERB community. While most of our work involves one-to-one or group counseling with students, we are also involved in consultation, outreach, training, and other activities to strengthen IISER Bhopal as an institution dedicated towards learningi, personal, and community development. Through counseling and other activities of the department, we strive to assist students in identifying, understanding, and solving problems. Each year more than 200 students seek assistance at Student Well being Centre (SWBC) for a wide variety of problems and concerns. Typical reasons for seeking counseling include depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, family issues, adjustment difficulties, and relationship conflicts. Students are seen for short term counseling by the therapists in our staff. If the issues the student brings cannot be adequately addressed in our brief therapy model, we assist the student in finding an appropriate referral resource.
