Kolkata| Seeing may still be believing but sadly not so when it comes to reading. It constitutes what is known as media literacy. The ability to separate the husk from the grain is very important in our world invaded by plethora of ‘news’ bombardment.
To that effect, Pro-social Peer Moderator Program, under the aegis of Dr. Samir Parikh, Director- Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, FMRI-Gurgaon and Dr. Sanjay Garg, Senior Consultant Psychiatrist, ventures to bring in meta-awareness in congruence with academia amongst children and adolescents to prevent dire consequences.
