Mental Health


Manaswin is our initiative to provide emotional counseling and support facilities to uniformed personnel in Mumbai.

Uniformed services individuals refer to all employees of government who wear ranks, armed or unarmed and are involved in the enforcement of laws, thereby risking their life to serve the country and its people.

In the lively city of Mumbai, where the demands on our uniformed heroes are relentless, managing the mental health is important. MANASWIN, meaning “emotionally strong” in Hindi, stands as an example of support and awareness.

Our program is designed to provide comprehensive mental health awareness sessions tailored specifically for the unique challenges faced by uniformed personnel like P. Through engaging workshops, interactive discussions, and expert guidance, we aim to equip our participants with the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate the complexities of their profession while safeguarding their emotional well-being.

This comes under Project Mumbai’s larger agenda of Making Mumbai Emotionally Stronger and Resilient.

The Smiling Schools Project

An Initiative by Project Mumbai in Collaboration with the MCGM

In February 2019, Project Mumbai signed an MoU with the government of Maharashtra, to create a mental wellness curriculum for adolescents, parents, and educators, thus giving birth to the Smiling Schools Project.  A growing body of research shows that a negative school environment is directly related to poor student attendance. Moreover, it severely undermines students’ capacity to learn and dramatically increases the likelihood that they will develop significant psycho social problems over time. On the contrary, students receiving support from their teachers and peers are likely to have positive self-esteem and fewer depressive symptoms.

The Smiling School Project by Project Mumbai aims at creating and enhancing a positive school climate and building the psychosocial well-being of students and other stakeholders of the school. TSSP aims at creating and enhancing physical, emotional, mental, and socially safe learning environments for children and other stakeholders in BMC schools in Mumbai.


TSSP curriculum is based on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). SEL has been defined as “the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decision.

Nayi Disha: Prison Counselling

Nayi Disha is an initiative by Project Mumbai in collaboration with Government of Maharashtra, department of Prisons to provide psychological support to people incarcerated in prison and staff of the facility.

We understand the toll that incarceration can take on mental health, and the unique challenges faced when reintegrating into society. Through our innovative program, we offer a dual-focused approach to support: one-on-one counseling and mental health awareness sessions.

Our one-on-one counseling provides a confidential and nurturing space for inmates to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. 

In addition to individual support, our group mental health awareness sessions foster a sense of community and understanding among participants. Through interactive discussions and engaging activities, we aim to dismantle stigma surrounding mental health and promote self-awareness and resilience.



A toll-free mental health helpline for adolescence

Our toll-free mental health helpline number (1800-102-4040) aims to provide emotional support to the adolescence. This helpline is active for twelve hours a day i.e. 8 am to 8 pm seven days a week and is handled by trained counsellors.
