The idea behind Child Guidance Centre Newsletter

The main focus of the newsletter is to spread awareness about mental health and discuss recent trends and developments in the field of psychology, particularly in India. People from various backgrounds, working in different areas of psychology volunteer to write on a topic every other month so that it is comprehensible to the common man. In this manner we aim to create awareness among the masses. The editor in chief is Niharika Thakkar and any contributions are welcome. To contribute please email niharika.t@cgcpune.com. We have copies of the newsletter available at the centre or you can subscribe to it by sending us your E-mail Id (on the right).
