Guest Session on - Mental Health

JIMS Rohini organised a Guest Lecture on “Mental Health” on September 18, 2020 for the students of PGDM-IB, under the Life Skills Education program with the objective of acquainting them with the mental health issues, what leads to such conditions and how to deal with them. The resource person for the session was Ms. Sheetal Agarwal; Founder, Clownselors who is also a TEDx speaker.


We often confuse mental health with numerous other things and end up neglecting the seriousness of the issue. Ms. Sheetal introduced the fundamentals of mental health and also discussed why concentrating on mental health is vital to our growth and persistence. She emphasised on the fact that we only focus on our bodies physically, but fail to even acknowledge our mental wounds in the first place let alone cater to them. Ms. Agarwal explained thoroughly, the difference between mental health issues and mental illness as people usually puzzle these two. She discussed the determinants of mental health and what good mental health looks like. She also talked about the early warning signs that should not be ignored, and must be acknowledged and worked upon in order to maintain a positive metal health. She highlighted many ways through which we can sustain a healthy mental lifestyle.

Further she added; that come what may, only the people who choose to look at the brighter side of life despite all the distress can stay emotionally healthy. She also stressed on the fact that even staying happy all the time by simply ignoring and denying the troubles one is facing can be very toxic and lead to severe psychological issues later. So, it's very important to acknowledge and develop a sense of positivity through learning and acceptance as in the end we all have a choice to make the circumstances better by choosing what works best for us.

She stated that, "Happiness is not a condition, it is a skill that can be measured and built".

She concluded the session by reminding us all, that taking care of our psychological well-being is just as important as taking care of our physical well-being.
