Mental Health issues can be reduced in a preventative way

Jul-23

Mental health is a really important area for today's youth in India, writes Pete Read, CEO & Co-founder of Persona Education, in India's Brainfeed Magazine. 95% of millennials report stress according to a Cigna survey – the highest in Asia. Fortunately a solution is at hand: Multiple research studies have shown that well-being can be improved and mental health issues reduced in a preventative way – instead of a reactive way – by developing young people's social-emotional skills.

School owners and leaders, teachers, parents and the students themselves all must shift their mindset more towards skills and metacognition and away from rote learning and constant testing. This has been recognised in the NEP 2020, which stipulates schools to adopt and embrace Social-Emotional Learning.
