Psych-ED quiz competition

| | New Delhi

The Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences at Fortis Healthcare, is organising psychology quiz competition— Psych–ED. The first round is an online quiz, will be held on August 7, 2018.

Designed and executed under the aegis of Dr Samir Parikh, the quiz puts to test the knowledge of students from Classes XI and XII and seeks to cultivate their interest in the subject. The objective of the quiz is to impart learning while ensuring that the subject remains engaging and fun for the students.

Each school is required to nominate a team of three students from their senior secondary class. These students will compete in the three rounds of the competition — an online quiz, a zonal round and the finale. The online quiz, held in the school premises, will determine the top 12 qualifying schools (from each zone), which will participate in the zonal finals.

These zonal finals will be held across Delhi, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata. The winning team from each zone will compete in the finale, which will be held in the National Capital Region on September 1, 2018.

The online registrations would close on July 30, 2018. The prizes include Rs 1 lakh cash prize, a scholarship offer from GD Goenka University and an opportunity to intern with Mental Health and Behavioural Science Department of Fortis Healthcare.

Last year, Psych –ED witnessed the participation of over 460 schools from across 90 Indian cities. Over a thousand students participated in the quiz. Students from remote locations of India used digital networks to ensure their involvement. The Psych – ED quiz is an innovative tool through which each student will become an ambassador for positive mental health and aim to reduce the stigma that shrouds mental illnesses.
