Directorate of School Education Jammu, in collaboration with UNICEF and NalandaWay Foundation is launching an innovative Programme titled “Take It Eazy” for addressing the mental health and well-being needs of adolescents.

The Programme aims to build the socio emotional skills of adolescent boys and girls (aged 13-17 years). It uses an innovative storytelling methodology, where two characters discuss and resolve issues of adolescents in a fun and engaging story.

The “Take It Eazy” project is designed as a 30 – day project beginning on 22nd November 2021, one story every day.

Students (grades 8 and above) can give a missed call to a number (9266617888). An automated call is placed back to their mobile phones and the story of the day is played. Each story is nearly 5 minutes long.

The stories and art activities suggested at the end of every episode help students express their fears, emotions, motivates and support them in learning new positive habits. Students can send their feedback via WhatsApp to this same number or by recording their feedback on the call itself.
