Adolescent Guidance Service Centre
ADOLESCENT GUIDANCE SERVICE CENTRE (AGSC)
Recognizing the need for counselling and psychosocial intervention for adolescents the Institute has set up the Adolescent Guidance Service Centre (AGSC) in the year 2001 with the Vision to build society that ensures a healthy psychosocial development of young people so that they can experience a sense of well- being and grow up as adults with constructive attitude towards self and the society.
The mission of AGSC is to strive towards promotion of positive mental health of adolescents thereby preventing psychosocial problems amongst them by fostering development, promoting childhood experiences and ensuring access to mental health
To provide counseling and psychosocial care through a comprehensive adolescent guidance programme.
To ensure accessibility of services and avoid the stigma attached to access services, AGSC adopts a two-fold strategy towards the delivery of counseling & Psychosocial interventions for adolescents.
