Aarogyam's Innovative ACT- Parenting Program to Take Center Stage at WONCA World Conference 2023


Aarogyam, a leading advocate for holistic well-being, is proud to announce its groundbreaking initiative, ACT Parenting (Ayurveda Centric Therapeutic Parenting), which will be showcased at the prestigious WONCA World Conference 2023.


ACT Parenting is a pioneering program that draws upon the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda to address the most common challenges faced by children and families today. Developed and implemented within the community by Aarogyam UK, this program has garnered significant success in overcoming these challenges.


Hosted by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), this event organized by the World Organization of National Colleges, Academies, and Academic Associations of General Practitioners/Family Physicians (WONCA) is set to be a platform for the introduction of this innovative program.


Dr. Mridu Sharma, leading the ACT Parenting initiative at Aarogyam UK, expresses excitement about sharing this unique approach at WONCA 2023. "ACT Parenting is a groundbreaking program that seamlessly integrates Ayurvedic principles into modern parenting practices, providing families with effective tools to navigate life's complexities.


We are honored to have the opportunity to present our work on a global stage."


ACT Parenting Program has taken another significant step forward by becoming an integral part of the global mental health campaign of Aarogyam UK "Bridging Minds."


This campaign is dedicated to advancing culturally responsive therapies to address mental health challenges worldwide. The "Bridging Minds" campaign serves as a platform to raise awareness about the importance of culturally responsive therapies in mental healthcare. By integrating ancient Ayurvedic principles into modern parenting practices, ACT Parenting aligns perfectly with the campaign's objectives.


The campaign comes at a critical juncture when mental health issues are a global concern. Dr. Neha Sharma, Founder and CEO of Aarogyam, expressed her enthusiasm for contributing to such a significant cause: "Our participation in 'Bridging Minds' signifies our dedication to promoting mental well-being on a global scale. We are excited to collaborate with like-minded organizations and individuals to make mental healthcare more inclusive and responsive." Bridging Minds aims to bridge the gap between traditional and modern mental health approaches, acknowledging the importance of cultural context in therapy and treatment.


By including ACT Parenting, the campaign strengthens its holistic and culturally relevant arsenal of mental health resources. "We are humbled by the global acknowledgment of our vision. It's a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team in promoting holistic well-being and improving the lives of children and families." Said Dr Neha Sharma.


WONCA World Conference 2023 promises to be a landmark event where healthcare professionals from around the world will converge to exchange knowledge, experiences, and innovative approaches to healthcare. Aarogyam's presence and presentation of the ACT Parenting program by Dr Mridu Sharma will undoubtedly contribute to the discourse on family health.
