A recent study by Asian Journal of Psychiatry, the Indian students are not very happy in Indian universities and thus are grabbed under clouds of various levels of depression.
The Study, "Depression among Indian university students and its association with perceived university academic environment, living arrangements and personal issues" by Prof. Sibnath Deb, Parveen R. Banu, Shinto Thomas, R.Vishnu Vardhan, P.Tirupathi Rao and Nigar Khawaja highlighted that the students who reported positive views about the university academic environment and living arrangements had lower level of depression compared to their counterparts.
Facts of the Study:
The study has also emphasised the fact that no institute has a well established mental health support centre under the guidance of trained psychologist
Therefore, mental health challenges of university and/or college students go unnoticed and finally some of them develop suicidal ideation and they attempt to commit suicide. The findings of the study emphasised the need for immediate mental health support services for about 15.6% of the students who were either suffering from severe or extremely severe depression at the University.
