Sneha runs a project on domestic violence and mental health using an integrated stepped care model, which includes components of counseling, legal intervention, community mobilization and prevention, and working with duty bearers, and ties in the technology-based social innovation the Little Sister mobile application.
It covers informal urban settlements of Dharavi ,Govandi, Malwani, Mankhurd and Parel. The scope of the program is to work on primary, secondary and tertiary interventions to prevent violence.
Primary prevention aims to create an ecosystem that is intolerant of gender-based violence by raising awareness through group education and campaigns, creating a cadre of volunteers from communities to identify cases of violence, refer women at an early stage of domestic violence and provide them assistance to prevent it from reoccurring.
Secondary prevention of violence through crisis intervention and extended response (including counseling) is delivered by counselors trained in addressing gender-based violence. The tertiary interventions include extended legal and therapeutic responses that engage with the police, district free legal aid services and public hospital.
