Considering that untreated and undiagnosed depression is the leading cause of suicide and third leading cause of death among teenagers, adolescent mental health should be on top priority for schools as their present wellbeing directly affects their and our country's future. On the occasion of World Mental Health Day, Presidium recently organized a 'Mind Your Mind' workshop to spread awareness about the importance of positive mental health and equip adolescents with skills to cope effectively with stressors.
The honourable chairperson of Presidium, Mrs. Sudha Gupta also graced the event, along with many renowned external experts. Firmly believing in the importance of investing in the emotional health of 'leaders of tomorrow', the dignitaries addressed more than 200 11th and 12th grade students from Presidium and other schools in Gurgaon in this impeccable experience of healthy interaction, mutual learning and live sessions on dance and expressive arts therapy. It was heartwarming to see the youngsters getting transformed into more aware and empowered students, who can perform at their highest potential, enhance their emotional and mental wellbeing and embrace positivity.
