Youth and Mental Health is a topic that is in need of dire discussion. Today, a big percentage of India’s population is made up of people falling below the age of 35.
Our youth, the so-called ‘future of tomorrow’ is growing, but with it the pressures of a world with high competition and less resources.
To begin nurturing our future, we need to start sowing the seeds of a healthy society which is mental health-friendly right at the beginning. In this MHT conversation, we are joined by Dr Noufal Hameed, whose vast experience with youth and mental health can shed some light on the subject.
In this Conversation with MHT, Dr Noufal takes us step-by-step to understand the problems faced by our youth and mental health. He walks us through the depth and width of our problem at hand and emphasizes the importance, of greater value, the mental health of our youth. While giving us some insights into the mental disorders that plague a huge number of today’s youth, he also enlightens us on signs we often overlook.
Even when we are concerned for our peers, it can be a difficult subject to approach. Through well-explained examples, Dr Noufal Hameed helps us really get to know, when and how, to help out a young person in need. He eloquently breaks down the various risk factors and protective measures we can employ.
