Help the Youth
Heartfulness presents Heartnotes
This year we want to bring the Atlanta community an offer. Our HeartNotes 2019 event is an opportunity to express your compassion by supporting a cause of vital importance and urgency: “Reduce suicide rates among our youth by providing HELP (Heartfulness a Experience of Life’s Potential).”
We have already rolled out this program to over 300,000 high school students in India across 1500 intermediate colleges and are planning to scale this to over a million students across multiple states in the upcoming academic year. We intend to also roll this out in multiple countries including US in a phased manner starting from our own neighborhood schools in Atlanta.
Why this cause?
And why in India?
India’s demographic dividend results in a huge economic growth opportunity, as the median age is 28, compared to aging populations elsewhere in the globe. Even China’s median age is 37. India’s President, Ram Nath Kovind, said in a recent speech, however, that this opportunity is threatened by a mental health epidemic in the youth, especially high schoolers.
Will the future India be made up of young people who are full of aspiration but fragile and weak in their mental constitution?
To tackle this problem, Heartfulness Institute has partnered with various state governments to roll out the HELP program. This program teaches students life skills in an engaging manner, and equips them to deal with the stress and pressures of a highly competitive society.
