Mental and emotional well-being is a spectrum that everyone, including students, navigates throughout their lives. Just like our physical health, our mental state can have its peaks and valleys. It's a natural part of human experience shaped by a combination of genetics, environment, experiences, and even daily routines.
While it's common to face emotional challenges, like sadness after a disappointment or stress from academic pressures, some challenges persist or intensify, suggesting a deeper underlying concern. These more profound issues might manifest as prolonged periods of sadness, overwhelming anxiety, or difficulty coping with day-to-day activities.
