"I think it’s really important to take the stigma away from mental health… My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth." —Kerry Washington, from HuffPost.

As the world around us is changing at an unprecedented speed, where old ways of thinking, doing, feeling, and sensing are continuously being replaced with new ways, where planned obsolescence is the norm of the time, people’s ability to adapt often falls behind. A country like India is fast moving away from its communitarian values to more individualistic ways. Here bullying, body shaming, and online abuse have become common phenomena. One is often torn between competing values that are continuously pulling us in opposing directions. Values espoused by the cinemas, mass media, social media, and the family may not always converge but create contradictions.

We live in a society where being fat, having dark skin, belonging to certain communities are stigmatized and stereotyped causing mental health issues. Symbiosis Center for Emotional Wellbeing (SCEW) continuously works with the students and teachers and other staff members to improve their mental health and help us to equip ourselves with the necessary skills to tackle emotional disturbances.

They publish regular newsletters and organize faculty development workshops on Emotional First Aid and the kind. The center also addresses the students every year during the induction and has a councilor on campus to whom students can reach out at any time.
