IMPORTANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH FOR STUNDENTS
Transcript of IMPORTANCE OF MENTAL HEALTH FOR STUNDENTS
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Mental illnesses, and the stigma surrounding them.
Helping students make the most of their education is everyone’s goal. Students struggling with depression or other mental illnesses have a harder time feeling motivated, learning, concentrating, taking tests, etc. But with timely and proper treatment, mental health challenges can be addressed and students can reach their academic potential.
