About Us

Trauma is the most unaddressed and unseen epidemic in today’s time. Seven out of ten children in India experience some form of adversity at an early age. If left unaddressed, these painful experiences can haunt them for the rest of their lives, deeply impacting their mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.
I Am Wellbeing (Nairatmya Foundation) is a mental health not-for- profit organization dedicated to supporting such young lives struggling with adverse childhood experiences and building an ecosystem of trusted, available, trained adults. We believe in the power of compassion, connection, and care to develop a healthy and happy nation.


While the last decade has highlighted the significant need for mental health interventions, it has also exposed the scarcity of trained professionals compared to the staggeringly high number of people in need of mental health care and support in India. With each passing day we get to witness a new statistic or data related to increasingly high number of deaths by suicide, depression rate, severe mental health and physical health concerns like chronic illnesses, heart problems, and autoimmune diseases.
The key to mitigating the impact of the perpetually increasing wellbeing concerns in our country is to look beyond the presenting symptoms of an individual and work towards the root cause through a holistic and trauma- informed outlook.
We strive to fulfill this unmet need of quality mental health care by building the capacity of professionals towards adapting a trauma- informed approach that is inclusive, contextualised, and de-stigmatising. To bring this shift in managing mental health concerns, we have designed a 6 months long coursework on trauma- informed care practices. Experts from the field will support the participants to build a trauma-informed lens for intervention planning.
The course will create an understanding of evidence-based holistic tools used to process deep-rooted trauma.

Course Activities & Duration

The course will encompass various activities like learning sessions, group discussions, assignments, case conceptualisation, roleplays & supervision. There are a total of six modules to be covered over a period of two months. Upon completion of each module, the participants will submit graded assignments. The end of the theory sessions will embark on the beginning of four months of trauma-informed supervision with experts from the field. As the supervision commences, participants will attend a viva and submit case studies. The intensive process is designed to ensure the learning and application of trauma- informed care practices successfully.
