Course on stress management

Course on stress management

VISAKHAPATNAM: Mental health experts in the city have decided to hold a diploma course for parents, teachers, and nurses. The diploma course covers as many as 18 topics focusing on stress management.

Similarly, Aashadeep Foundation, an NGO, was formed in the city on Sunday to create awareness among people on depression and suicide prevention. HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao launched the NGO.

Mental health experts said depression is fast turning into a lifestyle disease and even adversely affecting children. “Very often depression goes unnoticed. It’s becoming a chronic problem leading to suicidal tendencies. Given the situation, there’s need for creation of awareness,” they said.

Aashadeep Foundation director V Hari Lakshmi, who is also a professor of psychology, said teachers and parents will be trained to identify depression and other mental ill health symptoms in the early stages. “The aim is to remove stigma for mental health problems and treat them in the same way as physical problems by trained professional counsellors,” she added.

Meanwhile, Psyacademy and Counseling Services (PACS) said it will help develop psychological skills through knowledge and training. The academy will offer a diploma and an advanced diploma course for the benefit of the common man.

Experts say depression goes unnoticed leading to suicidal tendencies.
