How to cope up with the issues?
The organization definitely would host medical camps, discussions, and informative sessions etc for the student health. But parents also need to be alert. With advancing age and maturity, the students are subjected to various problems which parents must observe and try to understand. Pressure of performance, studies, peers etc is one of the leading problems which leads to other issues, which may be mental or physical or both. If parents can do a good counseling from time to time, and take the student to a good doctor, may be the family physician for a regular checkup, then things can be kept on control. Often students may not open up things in front of parents that easily, which they may do in front of the doctor, psychological counselor or health counselor. Read here about women’s health and issues.
