NO NEED TO STIGMATISE PSY­CHI­ATRIC PA­TIENTS

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - PUNJAB/HARYANA -

It is heart­en­ing that the stigma at­tached to psy­chi­atric ill­ness is slowly fad­ing away in our so­ci­ety. There is also recog­ni­tion that chil­dren could be most vul­ner­a­ble to such dis­eases, as they soak up the school pres­sure and bat­tle rapid changes in their bod­ies and minds. Bul­lies also im­pinge on a child’s men­tal health. For this, par­ents and school man­age­ments must adopt a zero-tol­er­ance pol­icy. Ra­jiv Asthana, Hoshiarpur
