World Mental Health Day
SIBC in association with the Pillai Group of Institutions observed World Mental Health Day on the 10th October, 2018. To mark this day an awareness talk and discussion on mental health and mental well being was organised for the students. The resource person for the event was Mr. Johnson Thomas, Co-Founder and Director of Aasra, a suicide helpline in Mumbai. Mr. Thomas commenced the talk with a video giving information on the various stressors people face in life and how suicide should not be an option, rather one should seek help when they are unable to cope with it. He also spoke on ways to protect and build one’s mental health and well being. Around 100 students from the graduate college, engineering college and management college attended this session.
