Youth Mental Health Initiative

Mental health is a crucial aspect of overall well-being. It encompasses emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It is just as important as physical health in determining an individual’s quality of life and their ability to function effectively. Students’ mental health is crucial because it directly impacts their academic performance, overall well-being, and future success. When students experience good mental health, they are better equipped to cope with stress.
