Researchers/ Psychologists have been extensively emphasizing on mental health and well-being. Lack of awareness about mental health and related concerns have led to stigma and misinformation. Ignorance and misconceptions have resulted in individuals experiencing mental health issues. In 2020 WHO (world health organization) estimated 1 in 8 individuals worldwide are suffering from mental health disorders. According to the reports by WHO India has the largest population of people suffering from mental health issues.

On the other facet growing recognition for mental health, it becomes our responsibility as individuals to take care of our well-being and seek help from professionals like Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Therapists, Counsellors. These professionals identify, assess, diagnose and treat emotional, psychological, behavioral problems through the means of different therapeutic approaches and techniques in the therapy sessions .

Hey you know what you don’t have to visit them only when problems arise. You may also work towards self-awareness, personal growth, decision making, increasing productivity, parenting, and much more. Remember it’s more than just talking . Come on don’t worry about how expensive it is ! Why not save up on two food orders or purchasing a dress less? Taking care of mind is as important as taking care of the body.

Let me take you through the latest developments in the sector – Due to increasing mental health crisis , Government of India announced National Tele Mental Health Programmme (NTMHP). The aim is to provide free and around the clock mental health services. The programme includes 23 mental health networks , with National institute of mental health and Neuro science (NIMHANS) being the nodal center and International Institute of Information Technology-Bangalore (IIITB) providing technology support. Technical support being provided by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bengaluru and National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHRSC). As per Mental Healthcare act 2017, mental illnesses are covered under insurance. Why not GOOGLE it up ?

Emotions are dozens; they include anger, contempt, enthusiasm, envy, fear, frustration, disappointment, embarrassment, disgust, happiness, hate, hope, jealousy, joy, love, pride, surprise, sadness and many more. Remind yourself it’s okay to feel it all. Thoughts are our ideas, beliefs and attitude towards ourselves and people. They can be shaped by our life experiences but a lot of times we are caught in overthinking. Don’t you think thoughts and emotions can influence the way we behave and act? All the factors need to be taken care of.

Here is the CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Model showing how it’s all interconnected.

It will not be fair if I do not share few tips to take care of mental health. Being a Counselling Psychologist I too practice the same SO HERE IS YOUR TOOL KIT

    Atal Tinkering Lab

    The students were given a challenge to build their own robot, with no restrictions attached!

    In this era of technology, rapid developments are being made everyday especially in the field of electronics, where automation of dangerous tasks is the top priority.

    This is how ATL (ATAL TINKERING LAB), a version of scientific innovation from young minds, finds a mark on NHPS.

    Our students rose to the occasion in translating their creative and innovative skills in science and technology.  They utilized the facilities provided by the school and came up with successful projects which would benefit mankind and our country in particular.

    Transport

    Strong bonds of friendships are forged during these journeys. The journey can sometimes be long and tedious for the students. This can hamper their concentration level and their eagerness to learn. The comfort and safety of our students is of paramount importance to us. In order to ensure a comfortable and safe journey, New Horizon Public School introduced a fleet of luxury, AC buses this academic year.

    These AC buses are new and comfortable. The children can relax and enjoy their time with their friends without being disturbed by the noises coming from outside. The children come to school feeling fresh and eager to begin a new day in school.

With this objective in mind, the latest addition to our facility is a well-equipped Life Skills Lab.

    Respected Madam,

    I am writing this e-mail with immense happiness and gratitude. To see Niharica improve slowly and steadily has given me a lot of confidence that she will do well in her academics even in her higher classes. She now reads very well and independently. She also remembers things better. Her writing has improved as well.

    I would like to thank you mam for your patience, understanding and encouragement. I would also thank the school management for having such a set up where the kids can be given special attention to improve in the areas that they are weak in.

    Mam, I am sure that with your guidance Niharica will have a wholesome growth. Thank you once again.

    Yours sincerely,
    Malathy
