What is Imagine

IMAGINE was started by Children First in partnership with Teamwork Arts in 2018; an annual event designed as a confluence to start a movement for our children. To bring together parents, teachers, psychologists, counselors, therapists, medical practitioners and all professionals and organizations that work with children; through interactive sessions, conversations so that we can together IMAGINE a better world for our children.
Each year we aim to pick up a relevant theme related to child and adolescent mental health, education, neurodiversity, disability and look at the best pratices in that area in our country and worldwide but which is relevant to the Indian context.

About Children First

Children First is a child & mental health institute which is doing ground-breaking work in the area of providing clinical services, school mental health programmes and community outreach. We believe that each child has the right to an emotionally safe space i.e. a space which is inclusive, nurturing and fosters growth without discrimination or neglect. Emotionally safe spaces are at the core of children’s holistic development from early years through school and college. Some children are rendered more vulnerable due to disability, learning difficulties, mental health concerns or limited availability of resources. They struggle to access emotionally safe spaces at home, school, college and in the community putting them at risk for lifelong patterns of invisibility, rejection and failure. It is crucial that we come together to share, support and learn from each other to stand up to forces of stigma and shame. Children First
