New Delhi: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched a psychological counselling app for students and parents.
The mobile app named ‘Dost for Life’ can be accessed by students and parents of CBSE-affiliated schools around the world.
Students of classes 9 to 12 and their parents can book counselling sessions on the app from Monday (May 10).
CBSE will organize free of cost live counselling sessions thrice a week on Monday, Friday, and Wednesday by trained counsellors/Principals.
The sessions will be available in two slots- 9.30 am to 1.30 pm and 1.30 pm to 5.30 pm. Students and parents can connect through a Chatbox to interact with the counsellors.
Besides counselling sessions, the app will also offer suggestive course guides after Class 12, tips on mental well-being, a coronavirus guide and audio-visual messages.
The app is currently available on the Google Play store and can be downloaded by Android phone users.
