The Department of Psychology, Vanita Vishram Women’s University organized a Psychology Fest, Psynapse 2023 on friday, 17th february at Baji Gauri Open Air Theatre, Vanita Vishram, Athwagate, Surat under the abled guidance of honorable provost Dr. Daxesh Thakar.
This psychology fest was organized to bridge the gap between society and mental health awareness. The objective of this fest was creating awareness regarding psychology as a subject because society at large believes it to be only a subject dealing with mental disorders; however, it is actually a subject dealing with the scientific study of human behavior. In order to create this awareness 25 stalls were arranged that were based on the principles of psychology in everyday living.
The chief guest for the inaugural ceremony was Dr. Kishorsinh Chavda the Vice Chancellor of Veer Narmad South Gujarat University and the guest of honor was Shri Manhar C. Desai, Secretary of Vanita Vishram. The convener of this event was Dr. Aditya Farsole, Head, Department of Psychology.

This fest saw a total foot-fall of over 4000 individuals that included Vice Chancellors, Deans, Principals, HODs, Professors, Teachers, Mental Health Practitioners, Students from Various Schools and Colleges, Parents and General Public.
