UNESCO’s Mental Health Guide For Students
UNESCO New Delhi launched its publication, Minding our Minds during COVID-19: a guide to help foster positive mental health for students in India, to tackle the challenges posed by COVID-19 on the education system and students.

The publication was launched virtually by Union Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’. “Children and adolescents are more vulnerable and have been experiencing a heightened level of stress and anxiety due to the COVID-19 crisis. UNESCO’s guide therefore will deepen our understanding in this regard and help the education system to better respond to the mental wellbeing of students,” said the Education Minister. 


“The pandemic is causing significant psychological impact worldwide. For children who were already dealing with mental health issues before, this sort of disruption can lead to even more difficulty in the path to a good education. Minding our Minds guide has practical and constructive solutions to address these challenges”, said Eric Falt, UNESCO New Delhi Director.

The coronavirus pandemic has caused more than 430 million children in South Asia to rely on remote learning, who could now join the 32 million children who were already out-of-school. The long-time closure of educational institutes has hindered the growth as well as affected the mental health of students, as per UNESCO.
