To be mentally healthy does not mean the absence of mental health problems. It simply means to be able to feel positive and capable of living and experiencing life well. In the present day context, many adolescents tend to express failure of experiencing meaning and purpose in life, experience identity crisis and face challenges in interpersonal relationships. An important step to staying mentally healthy is thus, to be able to explore and discuss such problems and to able to help and seek help. In keeping with the same spirit, students of B.A. Honours (Humanities & Social Sciences) are coming together to celebrate positive mental health and create a space for people to curb curiosities and spread awareness.
