Mental Well-being

Fact:   Data shows that mental health problems are as common as physical health problems

WHO estimates that by end of this year roughly 20 per cent of India will suffer from mental illnesses. India accounts for 36.6 per cent of suicides globally. NIMHANS revealed that 9.8 million teenagers in the age group 13-17 years suffer depression and other mental health disorders.

Fact: The vast majority of people with mental health problems are no more likely to be violent than anyone else. Most people with mental illness are not violent and only 3%–5% of violent acts can be attributed to individuals living with a serious mental illness. In fact, people with severe mental illnesses are over 10 times more likely to be victims of violent crime than the general population. You probably know someone with a mental health problem and don't even realize it, because many people with mental health problems are highly active and productive members of our communities.

Fact : Treatment for mental health problems varies depending on the individual and could include medication, therapy, or both. Many individuals work with a support system during the healing and recovery process.


Fact: Like all physiological tests (blood, hormone, etc.,) need to be repeated periodically to check the parameters in line with treatment. Similarly, psychoeducational assessments have to be repeated every 2 years. Any assessment taken in real-time is thus required to be repeated to bring about necessary modifications to the counselling plan/IEP.

Fact: This assessment measures the academic skills and abilities that one has acquired throughout one schooling/education. Thus, no preparation is required for taking these assessments.

Fact: Recruiters are always concerned about the credibility and feasibility of psychometric assessments. However, like other psychological tests, these tests are objective and help determine candidate-fit for any given position. They also save time and money and make employers feel more confident when choosing candidates.

Career Assessment

Fact: Anyone can find a variety of fulfilling careers. After an individual has become interested in a particular career field, numerous different paths can be pursued. If someone is interested in working in education, they then can narrow their focus to a particular speciality, such as school administrator, teacher, etc., and weigh the pros and cons of each job. Over time people's interests change. It's not uncommon for someone who graduated from college with a degree in economics later in life to find they've developed an interested in horticulture. The perfect job today, may not be the perfect job tomorrow.

Fact: Those who have completed science and liberal arts programs usually develop critical analysis, writing, and research skills. These skills can be applied a number of ways in different industries.

Fact : The economy and job market are always changing. New technology, retiring workers, and overseas job outsourcing are just a few of the factors driving this change. Increased or decreased demand for certain products and services can also lead to changes in the job market. This should serve as a caution for college students basing their choice in majors solely on job growth or decline since there could be many or few jobs available in certain industries after graduating. Job growth or decline should be one of many factors to evaluate when making a career decision.


Fact: The therapeutic relationship differs from other relationships. It is not reciprocal, not a "two-way street."The client will likely share intimate details with the therapist, but the therapist will not be responding in the same manner.Instead, the therapist sets limits around if they will share personal information in order to keep the focus where it needs to be—on to the client and their goals.

Fact: Therapists typically refrain from overt instruction unless there is a safety concern.Rather, they reflect back what the client has said and facilitate a thorough examination. Therapists may guide to consider other options the client had not imagined or to think through the positive, negative, and ‘somewhere in between’ consequences of taking a particular path.

Fact : Seeking help for mental health issues nowadays are viewed as a sign of resourcefulness. This is a sign of courage and overcoming the stigma.Most of the therapy clients struggle with many of the same problems we all struggle with daily: relationships, self-doubt, confidence, self-esteem, stress, life transitions, depression, aggression and anxiety. For that reason the preferred designation for the person in therapy is “client,” not “patient.”

Fact : Clients are active participants while therapists help them face and uncover whatever is bothering them. That process takes time and can be initially difficult and painful. A skilled therapist is trained on how to lead clients through the storm into the calm.

Fact : Therapy is not a passive process. Therapists are trained in experiential modalities to lead an interactive collaboration with the client. Together psychotherapists and clients identify problems, set goals, and monitor progress as part of the process.

Special Needs

Fact: The majority of children with disabilities actually have mild to moderate disabilities. This means most of them can meet the same class-level expectations as their peers provided they get access to the correct support and scaffolding.

For eg. A student with ADHD can be made to attempt the same papers as the rest of their peers. They just might need a few monitored breaks during the test/exam.

Fact: For a parent, it’s natural to worry about the stigma of a “label.” But special education programs focus on support based on your child’s needs—not the “label.” You must aim to advocate for your child continuously. At the beginning of each term seek an appointment with the teacher/s and explain to them who your child really is and not just on paper. Encourage your child to self-advocate, too. Keep in mind that getting support for your child in the form of a well-structured Special Education Program will go a long way in helping your child learn the much-needed skills required for him/her to progress through the regular school program.

Fact : Customer and co-worker acceptance comes with awareness and having opportunities to observe that workers with disability are competent and efficient in their jobs. Hiring people with disabilities can result in increased staff motivation and an organisation that supports all members of society builds itself a lot of goodwill.

Professional Development

Fact: Developing employees are on top of the minds of recruiters

Fact: It is important to understand the e-learning is a delivery method. The real question you should ask is whether the provider is accredited and has a recognised certificate. An e-learning course from a recognised provider is much more reliable than in-person training from a less professional provider.

Fact : Training institutes have more imagination than ever when it comes to presenting realistic, real life training. (Role playing, virtual reality, simulation and on the job training.
