About ACWB

Established in 2016, the Ashoka Centre for Well-being (ACWB) is a non-aligned Centre offering counselling and psychological support for students, staff and faculty at Ashoka University. ACWB was established to provide a safe space that offers free and confidential individual and group counselling support. It is the only Centre of its kind in India with its focus on capacity building at every level of an organization.


We are a team of professionally qualified counsellors led by Founder and Director Arvinder J Singh. The Centre provides an emotionally safe space for students, staff and faculty at Ashoka to share their concerns, uncover their strengths and build resilience. All our counsellors are queer affirmative.

Our Vision

Operating with a mindset of well-being, instead of diagnosis, the ACWB focuses on preventive, clinical, and promotional aspects of mental well-being. The Centre’s focus lies in promoting the value of good mental health to improve individual coping capacity through skill-building.

Well-Being Lab

The Centre regularly conducts research to observe various trends in mental health within Ashoka University which helps plan timely interventions. ACWB extends its support to the wider community through awareness programs, peer support programs, social media advocacy, interactive workshops and groups sessions within and outside Ashoka.

The Centre also focuses on Well-Being at Workplace through workshops to support the mental health of staff members at various levels of the University. All the above is achieved under the unique flagship of the Well-Being Lab, that was established in 2017.

Our Mission 

To multiply the ACWB impact and continue our work in making mental health accessible, inclusive and equitable for all through awareness and capacity building.
