Mental Health: Between the Education Provider and the Students

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps to determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

A healthy person must have both strong physical health and good mental health. Both physical and mental factors play a crucial role in success, growth, and living. Mental health is intangible and can change over time when a person faces demands beyond their resources and coping abilities. It influences how they feel, think, and behave.

When a student is experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or trauma, these issues will make it difficult for him or her to concentrate and engage during the learning process. Eventually, student performance will be impacted and decreased. My dear students, if you have any doubt about your mental health or are feeling pressure, please consult the student service officer, teacher, or even principal. They are always prepared to lead you out of the shadows.

The educational environment can also impact students’ mental health due to high levels of stress, academic pressure, bullying, and social isolation in school. It is important and essential for an education provider to create a school that is supportive and nurturing to ensure positive mental health. The school can always provide the facilities i.e. access to mental health resources, counselling services, and create a culture that promotes positive mental health. We, Ozford staff, are always prepared to identify and assist those students with a sign of mental health. We will provide immediate and appropriate support and referrals.

In conclusion, being fit, both physically and mentally, is the key to success in all aspects of life. A supportive environment can help students in their learning process and academic success. Let’s all work towards achieving a balance between physical and mental well-being.

You have right to feel well, safe and support. If you need professional guidance with mental health, please contact:
