Internships at Manas


We at Manas Foundation make every effort to provide an extensive internship experience to students as well as institutions. We try to build a community of mental health ambassadors through our internship program where we build their capacity through training under our clinicians, psychologists and trainers. We offer meaningful and practical work related to our two major programs – Mental Health & Gender Justice. 


Team Manas
Mental Health

Our belief is that each individual, section, and community deserves access to mental health services. This program aims to understand the mental health requirements of the different sections of the society using a holistic view of the psychosocial model. 

Under this program we offer counselling services, awareness campaigns, mental health sensitisation training & workshops in various parts of the community. 

Gender Justice

All women have a right to be in any public space and it should not be driven by their concern of safety. Being mindful of this, Manas is continuously working towards creating safe public spaces for women. 

Our program provides gender sensitization and professional training workshops to auto, truck and cab drivers all over the country.
