INJUSTICE

Deprived education based on financial stability and sex. Social stigma centered around the mental health of aspirants and students.


WHO & HOW

The affected individuals are aspirants and students who are precluded from acquiring their dreams and ambitions. Children of financially unstable parents, which includes daily wageworkers, who cannot afford quality education in reputed institutions because of the upscale rates. Setbacks in providing help for these aspirants of various competitive exams who undergoes unfathomable mental stress and mental health issues. Non-acceptance of education of girl child in rural areas, which deprives them of achieving their goals. Mental health incorporate our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It influences how we think, feel and act. it also helps determine how we handle stress, pressure, identify and relate to others, and make healthy choices. Aspirants preparing for competitive exams are subjected to a lot of stress, which can gravely affect their mental health. These uproot the apprehensive thoughts in students, which can lead to losing hope in oneself. Often these signs go unnoticed by mentors and peers, moreover the social stigma prevailing around mental health issues restricts them from attaining proper help. Thus, it is very important to address the mental health issues faced by aspirants. Aspirants come from various financial backgrounds. Some come from households of poor socio-economic backgrounds, whose parents or guardians might not be able to afford the quality education offered by big coaching institutions. The primary reason for this issue is the enormous fee structure of these coaching centres. The society up to an extent is dominated by the rich sector who can mend every aspect and misuse and exploit the common means merited for the deserved students. Due to the same, students lose their chance and therefore have no choice but to give upon their dreams. Every student has the right to attain quality education, thus it is really important that each aspirant's dreams are not crushed just because they didn't obtain the right education. Education is extremely fundamental for each one to further develop knowledge, method of living, as well as social and economic status throughout the life. It assists an individual with getting information and further develop confidence level all through life. It assumes an extraordinary part in our vocational development as well as personal growth. Even though everyone has the right to attain education, there are areas where especially the girl child is confined of achieving education. This has to change, girl or boy everyone must be entitled to fulfil their dreams and goals through education.


WHY

Monopoly of the rich sectors of the society and the conglomerate entrance coaching institutions whom with the power of money can advertise and attain more publicity for their ventures. The rising competitions among aspirants take a toll on their mental health, which goes unnoticed by mentors. These peer pressures and stress might lead to mental health disorders such as anxiety disorders, behavioural and emotional disorders, depression etc. The society often ignore these grave issues and considers them as concerns which one has to dealt with their own. Mental health as important as it is goes unattended in such cases which leads to despair, discouragement and a sense of hopelessness in one. The society’s social stigma is to be blamed here, as the students are not well attended to when it comes to their mental health.
