St Ignatius College’s mission is to mould leaders who are emotionally intelligent, environmentally conscious, spiritual reflective and engaged in academic rigor by investing in the learning and teaching. In the quest to ‘educating the whole person’ holistically the College has a Guidance and Counselling Department that journeys with students emotionally.
Mental health illness is a physical illness of the brain that causes disturbances in thinking, behaviour, energy or emotion that make it difficult to cope with the ordinary demands of life. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, work in the same environment. However, only half of those affected receive treatment, often because of the stigma attached to mental health.
The College joins the nation in raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health. We will be running a one-week mental health awareness from 17th May-21stMay,2021 as we break the stigma associated with mental health.
As we exercise support for mental health and join the movement, students and the community are encouraged to wear a green ribbon which is an international symbol for our mental health awareness.
#There is no health without mental health.
