CBSE launches new mobile application ‘CBSE Dost’ for psycho social wellness of students, parents

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched a new mobile application for psycho social wellness of students and parents. The new app namely CBSE Dost for Life has been designed for students of classes 9 to 12 and it can be used for counselling sessions from 10th May.

Making a departure from the existing practice of counselling through toll free numbers across the country, the board has designed this facility for the ease, convenience and utility of students and parents within the safe home environment. Through this app, live counselling sessions will be conducted free of cost on Monday, Wednesday and Friday by the trained counsellors.

The students and parents can choose any of the two time slots – 9.30 AM to 1.30 PM or 1.30 PM to 5.30 PM and connect through a chat box as per their convenience. The app will also provide students information on suggestive course guides after ten plus two, tips on mental health and well-being, a corona guide and rap songs.

Students can download the app from the Google Play Store:-
