7th April, 2017 is a day that is celebrated across the world as World Health Day. On this occasion, Tibet Charity was keen to observe this important day, and to that extent marked the day by conducting a workshop presided over by Mrs. Jacquie Kilty, a professional psychologist. She instructed students on the nature of depression and how to identify it. The possible symptoms and the most helpful solutions were also discussed during the course of this workshop.
She informed the participants that Tibet Charity would be starting a scheme at Tibet Charity clinic, which would offer counselling sessions for free. She persuaded them to not suffer in silence but to take advantage of the new service and to share their problems with a professional therapist. This could go a long way in ensuring and sustaining the wellbeing of one’s mental health which is as important, if not more than an individual’s physical health.
It was a truly enriching and informative session for the participants.
