Skill training for adolescent girls

“Women hold up half the sky” and much more was what Dr. Mythili Hazarika, the Deputy Editor of the Open Journal of Psychiatry & Allied Sciences (OJPAS™) highlighted in her panel discussion at the National Institute of Public Cooperation and Child Development (NIPCCD), Guwahati. She was invited as a panelist in a workshop on skill training on ‘Life Skill Education for Adolescent Girls for District Level Officials of ICDS and NHM’ on 8 December, 2016. The programme was attended by 40 district level officials of both ICDS (implementing the Rajiv Gandhi Scheme for empowerment of adolescent girls – SABLA) and NHM (district programme managers of RKSK/ WIFS/ ARSH). Participating states were Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Odisha, West Bengal, Manipur, Meghalaya, and Mizoram. Dr. Mythili had highlighted on four critical issues of adolescent girls, i.e. sexual and reproductive health, including gender-based violence, malnutrition and anaemia, mental health and substance misuse, and unintentional injuries and other forms of violence.
