Mental health is a positive concept related to the social and emotional wellbeing of individuals and communities. Having good mental health, or being mentally healthy, is more than just the absence of illness; rather it’s a state of overall wellbeing. It is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stress of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
During COVID-19 lockdown, many people are staying at home and doing less in terms of social interactions and exercise. This can have a negative effect on their physical and mental health. In this regard, NSS and YRC unit of Jansons Institute of Technology Organised an awareness webinar on “Mental Health and Well-being” for JIT students through online mode. Dr. P. Priyatharshini, Dental Surgeon Tamilnadu Government Dental College and Hospital, was a resource person and she discussed more about the mental stability, how to take care of the health, how to utilize the free time of students in effective way. Most of our college students participated and benefited.
