EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING AND COUNSELLING

A positive emotional health allows people to realize their full potential, cope effectively with daily life challenges, work productively and make meaningful contributions to the society that we are living in. Studies reveal that at least 13.7% of India’s general population has various mental health issues. Irrespective of their age, the children and adolescents are also prone to various problems like anxiety, exam fear, childhood depression, suicide, drug abuse, behavioural addictions (social media websites, internet, video games, sexuality) etc.
