My experience as a Praan Helpline volunteer has been very enriching and hands-on. My time so far has been full of learning and insights. I got an opportunity to move beyond books and learn from experience, and be able to apply my knowledge on the field. The callers have been very diverse and that has aided by overall understanding. I am really thankful for this opportunity and I believe that it has been helpful in kick starting my professional journey in the field of psychology.

As a psychology student this has been a great learning experience both professionally and personally. The training sessions helped me reduce the feeling of anxiousness I had before answering calls and prepared us to respond to different types of callers. The whole team is very interactive and supportive which creates a good work environment. Glad to have had this opportunity.

Thanks a lot. After speaking with you, I’ve understood how to look at different aspects and encourage various perspectives. This has allowed my husband and me to speak and agree to sharing the workload

Thank you for this deeply empathetic email. It has resonated with me and forced me to reconsider my decision with therapy. Let’s have another session this week and talk about it.

This was a great task that helped us use our creativity to create awareness about an extremely pertinent topic of mental health. The meetings conducted provided us with ideas as well as different approaches to the task. Working together allowed us to reach a larger audience that we would not have been able to reach otherwise. It was a fruitful activity that helped us gain insight in mental health while reaching out to the community.

This activity was challenging and rewarding at the same time. Leading a team has been interesting, and activities like these can forge deeper connections in mental health communities where people can share, brainstorm, and implement different Ideas together for collective awareness. Awareness is an integral part of creating a movement. Groups like us can form an important part of this movement where people can reach out for help. I hope that our teamโ€™s efforts will have a positive impact on people.

I always fall short of words to thank the Praan team. But I would like to let you know, when asked by my ex-employer regarding my association with this organisation, all I could manage to say was, “I am ready to leave your job but I am not leaving Praan.” This is something that has kept me sailing through the tough times and I really enjoy being a part of Praan and helping others in a way that it did to me. The work at Praan holds a special place in my heart. So, this is all I can say – THANK YOU for being there! ๐Ÿ™‚
