New Delhi (India), October 19: For years, India’s traditional education system has been burdened by the pursuit of stellar results and the reach for higher percentages. Fueled by the aspirations of each student to enter India’s top and most prestigious institutions, students have churned out long hours, and study sessions dampened with memorizing academic concepts till the point of saturation.
Each year, as higher education institutions formulate new Entrance exams and modify their admissions procedure, students find an array of more stringent requirements that they must meet—leading to the onset of stress, anxiety and depression in perhaps the nation’s most consequential demographic.
Studies conducted in Chennai by the Schizophrenia Research Foundation (SCARF) indicated that 32% of students suffered from severe depression while 30% suffered from crippling anxiety, and only 5% received the correct professional treatment for these conditions.
Beyond these staggering figures, the study also looked at India’s suicide cases rising from 9.9 to 12.4 per cent after COVID-19. These numbers are expected to stay the same or increase until India mends its dormant educational system. Interesting statistics surfaced according to Indian Psychiatric Society state President Dr Paneer Selvan: “Earlier, the number one cause of death among youth used to be road accidents, now it is suicide:”
Beyond numbers and statistics, severe anxiety and depression have been known to keep students up at night. These symptoms Degrade their sleep patterns and ability to focus in class, thus creating a negative loop in their academic and personal lives. It is these minor patterns that often lead aspiring students to suicidal attempts.
Depression and anxiety have also been critical factors in deconstructing students’ self-esteem and confidence in light of their achievements. For every student who gets admitted into elite Indian institutions like IITs and IIMs, many more do not. And their stories are never heard, nor are their problems.
While concepts such as mental health are gaining prevalence in India, there is still a long way to go. Beyond treatment, if the rates of anxiety and depression are to be brought down and the country’s future is to be revitalized, India needs to look at the source of the problem before its remedy. Fortunately, some already have. As the new decade unfolds, Delhi NCR has become the epicentre of technical and Management education. Some of them are employing learning approaches that were unexpected before.
