Mr. Kezang Dukpa, Sr. Counsellor representing Ministry of Education at the National Mental Health Response Team.
Mental health is crucial for one’s proper functioning and to live a healthy life. Our mental health includes our psychosocial, emotional and social aspects of our lives. It’s the mental health that contributes to our decision making and practicing positive coping strategies to difficult situations in life. We make better decisions and cope with adversities with resilience ONLY if mental health is taken care.
All School Guidance Counsellors across the country are providing services beyond the schools and into the communities and have volunteered to provide services to anyone seeking help.
A total of 147 individuals have availed the online Counseling Services as of today.
So, talk to the counsellors before it’s too late. Waiting is a mistake.
