  • What is your founding story?

    We are two psychotherapists who have been practicing in the varying capacities of a mental health professional within the purview of clinical psychology. We are both undergraduates from DU and postgraduates with Mphil degrees from TISS. Our current project is motivated by the psychotherapeutic groups that we co facilitated together in our time working within hospital based psychiatric OPDs. We didn’t just find our work meaningful and impactful; rather we found that these groups were instrumental in helping us navigate the philosophies that guide our current initiative.

    We believe our lives are constantly “under construction” and life is lived at its most when we truly engage with this process. We understand everyone’s life as a unique experience placed in the larger context of their surroundings. We believe that who we are is as much a part of the larger social system as it is a part of us. Anchoring our practice within these philosophies we believe in providing a therapeutic space that not only moves one in their preferred direction but also one that encourages us to relate with care and concern towards others.

  • When was your support group founded? How has the journey been since then?
    Unheard Sagas started in 2019. We have successfully ran 2 anxiety groups so far. Now are launching 3 groups: Mindfulness, Anxiety in relationships and Parenting.
  • Who is your support group for?
    People diagnosed with BPD, CPTSD, separation anxiety as well as those who may struggle with difficulties in interpersonal relationships.
  • Explain your group's approach towards helping a person's mental health care.

    Unheard Sagas is a platform intended to make Mental Health Care accessible and affordable by creating a community of support for achieving well being.

    We believe everyone’s life is a unique experience placed in the larger context of their surroundings. Anchoring our practice within this philosophy we are providing group therapeutic spaces to encourage one another to relate with care and concern towards others.

  • What is your group's approach towards professional mental health care interventions?

    We have trained responders (i.e the facilitators themselves are mental health professionals) within the group space as well as a list of trusted professionals whom we can refer to.

    We keep an air tight process to ensure that clients can make the most out of the groups they join. We find ourselves heavily invested in group growth and often encourage our group members to support each other. Our groups are eventually only observed by facilitators who observe smooth functioning while the group members actively take over the functioning of the group providing for more freedom, increased self esteem and ultimately better well-being. We ensure that two facilitators are present for all groups to reduce personal bias as well as to keep the facilitators in a feedback loop regarding their professional interventions and skills to improve group outcomes. The facilitators themselves seek supervision (Peer and hierarchical ) in order to work through professional obstacles and to keep clients central top their work. Grounded in ethics of Beneficence and Non-maleficence, Fidelity and Responsibility, Integrity and justice, Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity, we constantly strive to be better versions of ourselves for our group members.

  • What conversations is your support group not equipped to support?
    We currently do not include group members who are actively struggling with suicidality. As we are not a crisis intervention group, we check for the same during our intake call. We then help the client who maybe struggling with suicidality receive care either from a private professional or from a crisis management organisation before they can join the group. This ensures their and the group members well-being and safety

  • Walk us through the average format of your group session.
    Our group sessions are anywhere between an hour to an hour an a half. In each session, members are encouraged to talk with each other in a spontaneous and honest way. A professionally trained therapist facilitates the discussion. Each session works through challenges that may arise in interpersonal interactions. The focus hence shifts from one session to another where some sessions exclusively focus on interpersonal development, where learning may come from interaction or feedback with each other, other sessions may address cognitive or behavioural patterns associated with self that maybe unhelpful. The group members are provided with a session-by-session outline which helps them be prepared and aware of what each session may tackle with.
  • What are your home rules/values?

    We are consistently driven to work within the framework of our core values and principles. These are reflected not just in our facilitation process within group therapy but are also values we use to work with each other and as well as others. We are guided by the APA guidelines of ethics and use these to anchor our work.

    Beneficence and Non-maleficence

    Our constant endeavour is to protect the rights and welfare of those with whom we work professionally. In order to achieve this we often encourage and keep each other in check to ensure that we are always working towards reducing our own biases as well as prejudices to provide an affirmative and safe space for all.

    Fidelity and Responsibility.

    We believe in making all our work accountable. All our groups include two facilitators, we encourage clients to provide us with feedback and we consistently work towards reducing any ethical dilemmas that may arise in our work.

    Integrity and justice: We are always in the process of creating open and honest lines of communication with those involved in our work. Furthermore, we ensure quality work by keeping ourselves updated, informed and well versed with the latest advances in the field and try to use the benefits of the same with all our clients.

    Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity Our work is respectful of everyone’s right to dignity, privacy, and confidentiality.

    We also keep ourselves well versed with concerns of various vulnerable and minority populations and are open and honest to learning more each step of the way. Through this we ensure that we are respectful as well as affirmative of the lived experiences of those with whom we work professionally as well personally.

  • What do you hope for participants in your group to take back with them after a session?
    1. Hope about themselves and their lives.
    2. Better awareness of their skills and strengths and how to best utilise them.
    3. To feel more comfortable with themselves as well as to work through triggers in relationships.
    4. To increase distress tolerance and ability to regulate difficult emotions/
