A helpline that reaches out to stressed students
The recent spurt of suicides by students in the state is a matter of great concern for society. It simply points to something being drastically wrong in the society where we all live. It points towards communication gaps between teachers, parents and students. It shows the pressure and stress they are carrying. It shows a depression and desperation that is seething within them. Otherwise why should a dynamic young person cut short his life right in the prime of youth?.
- “We like many felt the need to reach out, to talk, to analyze, and to counsel such students. What was born out of this concern was a helpline aptly named ‘All is well’, said Mr Anshumali Sharma of Child line Helpline Lucknow. A Reader and Head, Geology, J N P G College Mr. Sharma’s Child line that works for abandoned children decided to expand the work base and include counseling of stressed students during the time of emotional crisis, specially during examination.
