Well being, of all the stakeholders [students, faculty, and administrative staff ] is paramount as far as an educational institution is concerned. It is with this understanding in mind Janki Devi Memorial College renewed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with "Zyego", ALS WELLNESS NETWORK PVT LTD, in January, 2018. Zyego holds counselling and mentoring workshops for students and development programs for administrative staff and faculty.

In the academic year [July 2018- April 2019], Zyego organised workshops with students from Sports, Hostel, North -East, Chetna Society and Sanskrit department on interpersonal problems and issues related to emotional abuse, exam stress, anxiety. A special session was organised for Hindi Medium students on discrimination, for they often feel let down by other students. It was organised basically to improve their level of confidence and how to handle issues related to their socio-economic background. A workshop was also organised for the non-teaching staff and a Development Program [FDP] for the Faculty.

Besides, Zyego, the college has a professional counsellor, Ms Saniya Bedi, who handles counselling cases on one to one basis. She has been coming to the college twice in a week, students with issues like body image, lack of self-confidence, career, have been going to her. A session on 'Self -Awareness, Self-Harm and Self -Love' was organised by Ms Bedi in the month of March, with a small group of girl. It was an interactive sessions where girls opened up with their problems.
