Teenagers in India are the world's second most vulnerable population in the world for youth suicide. Yet the topic of mental health is seldom acknowledged. Very few schools have counselors. Teachers may notice students struggling, but have limited knowledge and access to provide support. Parents play a big role, but often struggle to have deep conversations with teens. The Baatein system consists of 1) An interactive magazine for guided parent-child conversations, 2) A teacher dashboard to track progress and discuss it at parent-teacher meetings, and 3)Teacher resources to become non-specialized, community based caregivers.
