The clubs have also been started in various polytechnic colleges and Industrial Training Institutes (ITI).

Respective station house officers are conveners while principals are chairmen of the clubs in their respective colleges. Up to 20 members, including two teachers and PTA members, can be added to a club whose main activities will be to provide counselling and treatment to affected students.
