As part of its activities to mark the 2023 World Mental Health Day, CHELD organised an interactive session with students of Kuramo Senior College, VI to teach them the importance of balancing their academic demands with their mental well-being.
Some of the topics covered during the session include: overview of mental health, its myths, rights of mental health patients under the National Mental Health Act, how students can balance the demands of their studies with their mental health and the role of the school in helping the students cope with their academic and mental health needs.
The session was interactive and exciting as shown by the eagerness of the students to participate in the session through their responses to the questions asked by the facilitators. The students also asked some which showed their grasp of the subject and their willingness to learn.
The students expressed their excitement and thanked the CHELD team for bringing the educative event to their school. Over seventy (70) students were in attendance.
