As per to a UNICEF report on mental health titled ‘The States of the World’s Children 2021’, it stated that the Coronavirus pandemic has led to some serious concerns regarding the mental health of children and their families.
According to the official reports, the report was released on October 5 by Union Health minister Mansukh Mandaviya. The report stated that around 14% of Indians in the age group of 15 to 24, that is 1 in 7, often feel depressed.
The report further added that a survey which was conducted across 21 countries, revealed that just 41% of young people in India were willing to seek guidance for mental health problems, whereas the overall average was 83%.
While releasing the report, Union Health minister Mansukh Mandaviya stated that mental health has widely been discussed in our Sanatan culture and spirituality. The mutual development of mind and body has been explained in our texts. A healthy mind resides in a healthy body. We are very happy that today UNICEF has released a global report on the mental health of children.
Union Health Minister further added that mental health problem has to be taken seriously. To build a better and developed society, it is necessary to keep monitoring the mental health of children from time to time. For this, arrangements will also have to be made for the better mental health of teachers in schools. Because children trust their teachers the most.
