According to the recent survey by the American Psychological Association, a life is lost every 40 seconds to suicide; yet, there isn’t sufficient amount of awareness regarding the seriousness of suicidal tendencies, thoughts and the act of committing suicide. Keeping this in view, the UN declared Suicide Prevention as a theme to spread awareness globally this 27th Mental Health Day. To contribute to it, Kaveri College of Arts, Science and Commerce celebrated this Mental Health Day like every year on 10 October, 2019. Principal Dr. Ashok Agrawal felicitated Mrs. Mughdha Shivapurkar, resource person for the session. Vice Principal Dr. Muckta Karmarkar, Faculty members and students were also present for the same.
Right from the decorations to the activities were planned and executed by the dynamic second and third year students pursuing B.A. Psychology. The event began with introducing each other using Chinese ribbons. It was followed by fun filled Visual and Art Therapy workshop, activities involving teamwork, sharing one’s insecurities etc. Mrs Mugdha Shivapurkar also introduced them to small mental health care practices which they can follow on a daily basis. She was given a souvenir as a token of appreciation decorated with the students’ experiences and compliments about how helpful these activities were for them.
Keeping prevention is better than cure as the motto and with an overall objective of spreading awareness to overcome the stigma of mental health problems this day was celebrated which became another successful and memorable event for the college.
