Brief Report :
“Mental health is not a destination, but a process. It’s about how you drive, not where you’re going.”
On the occasion of ‘World Mental Health Day,’ Ikshana organised a guest session on mental health, in collaboration with Symbiosis Centre for Emotional Wellbeing (SCEW), for the students of SCMS-H, SLS-H and SIBM-H. The event took place in the convention hall of our campus on 11th October, 2023 from 11 A.M onwards. The event witnessed active participation from the students present.
We were honoured to have our esteemed guests from the Sweekar Academy, each of them having specializations and expertise in areas such as adolescents and young adults, disability and special care, neuro-cognitive psychology, forensic psychology and many more.

The guests ensured that the session is as interactive and easy-going as possible. The speakers then called upon the students to suggest songs that they could add to the ‘Symbiosis Feel Good’ Spotify playlist. This was done to create an ever-lasting memory for the students as they can tune in with the playlist when they feel low.
The first activity introduced by the guests helped the students analyse themselves. The second activity provided insights to help the students understand their personality types by giving a real-life situation and their capabilities to respond to the situation presented.
