About the Organization: Sangath (www.sangath.in) is one of India's leading mental health research non-profit organisation. It was founded in 1996 with its headquarters in Goa; major hubs in Delhi and Bhopal, and project sites in many parts of the country. Sangath's mission and expertise lies in developing and evaluating mental health interventions to be delivered through existing public systems. Its major thematic areas are: Child development and disability; adolescent health; mental disorders; and ageing.
Sangath was awarded the prestigious MacArthur Foundation International Prize for Creative and Effective Institutions in 2008 and the WHO Public Health Champions Award for India in 2016. It has completed a number of randomized controlled trials for mental disorders in India, including the only two autism trials in the country.
Scalable Transdiagnostic Early Assessment of Mental Health (STREAM) is developing and validating non-invasive, scalable tools for assessment of child development in preschool years. The tools include observation of child behaviour, tablet-based gamified neuropsychological tasks, portable eye-tracking and video recording of parent-child interactions. The tool will be administered by trained non-specialist workers in homes/community centre settings on 0-6-year old children in Delhi. The key strength of these tools is that, in the long term, they will provide a low-cost, scalable way to assess child development and identify children that are at risk of not reaching their full developmental potential and refer them for timely interventions.
Sangath is part of a large consortium of top Indian and international research organisations that will be working together for this project being led by University of Reading in the UK.
