Mental Health issues amongst students is a very serious concern that is consistent throughout the world. This is even more alarming in the Indian context. Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) reported that 12-13% of students experience psychological, emotional and behavioural issues. While education is vital, the associated mental health concerns stemming from cultural, familial and peer pressure can affect the mental wellbeing of a child. Addressing these problems as they arise and using preventative measures to make sure they do not get worse is crucial for children.
Unaddressed or undiagnosed learning difficulties can also lead to problems as traditional learning methods/environments may not be compatible with their abilities. Children with Learning Disabilities (Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Nonverbal learning disabilities etc) may face judgement as being ‘lazy’, ‘not trying hard enough’, or ‘unintelligent’ especially when left undiagnosed. Reduced academic achievement may also result from other childhood disorders like Autism, ODD or ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity/Disorder). Addressing these concerns can help improve the mental wellbeing of children and assist them to perform better in academia.
At Bright Ray we provide a safe space to express and address academic-related concerns/issues privately, openly and without judgement. Psychometric assessments can be carried out if needed, to get proper understanding about the concerns as well as risk factors. Therapist will support the child to develop individualised techniques/strategies to manage time and learn more effective study habits. As part of therapy, we will guide parents to bring necessary modifications in the home environment to make it more conducive for learning. We are committed to be a consistent support system for children in their academic life to help them perform and live up to their potential.Book Now
