Nurturing Resilience: Rotary Club of Panvel Symphony Conducts 'Mental Strength' Workshop for Students and Parents Back

Panvel, December 9, 2023: In a bid to cultivate mental resilience among children, the Rotary Club of Panvel Symphony recently organized a transformative workshop titled 'Mental Strength.' The workshop, held on Saturday, December 9th, at The English School Panvel, addressed the crucial need to fortify the emotional well-being of students and their parents.

Rooting in Resilience: The project, aptly named 'Mental Strength,' focuses on nurturing our children as resilient saplings capable of facing life's challenges. Beyond academic achievements, the initiative aims to instill a sense of resilience, teaching children to weather storms with the collective support of their families and communities. The overarching goal is to create a generation with strong roots and wings, fostering a world where they can bloom rather than break.

Interactive Workshop Highlights: Dr. Vishal Ganar, a seasoned psychologist, led the interactive workshop, facilitating open discussions and providing valuable insights. Students found a platform to articulate their deep-seated concerns, creating an environment of understanding and support. The overwhelming response from parents underscored the pressing need for initiatives addressing mental well-being.

Positive Habits for Resilient Families: Dr. Ganar emphasized the importance of cultivating positive habits within families. One noteworthy suggestion was the adoption of a 'no mobile at home' policy, encouraging increased connectivity and quality time spent together. Practical and simple ideas were shared to strengthen family bonds and enhance overall well-being.

Future Initiatives: The success of the 'Mental Strength' workshop has paved the way for future endeavors. The Rotary Club of Panvel Symphony expressed its commitment to conducting more such workshops, recognizing the ongoing need to prioritize mental health in today's fast-paced world.

As we collectively strive to nurture resilient individuals, the workshop served as a significant step towards creating a supportive community where children can thrive emotionally and academically. The Rotary Club of Panvel Symphony remains dedicated to fostering mental strength, ensuring that our children not only survive but flourish in the face of life's challenges.
