Mental health issues majority of times start at the very early age of students or later in teenagers. Usually, mental health problems can cause difficulty for students with performing, learning, speaking, behaviour and having control on the emotional factor.
Thousands of researches have been made on mental sickness which explains that mental health is critical to a child’s overall well-being just like physical health is. Both physical and mental sickness is inter-relevant to each other for instance a student with the flu would struggle to learn in the classroom, so too does a student with a mental health diagnosis. Mental health conditions can impact a student’s ability to thrive in school, on sports teams, at home, at work and in greater society.
As many as 50M people are suffering from mental disorders in Pakistan or could be diagnosed with mental health disorders, according to the news. However, as few of 7 percent of these young people actually receive the care they need. There are a number of genetic, biological and environmental factors that boost the probability of mental health disorders.
They also noted that some students can have mental health problems without a known or recognisable disorder, for example, a student who is bullied may have poorer mental health and conscious nerves. Well, here making adjustments is quite hard. Whether you are a student experiencing the campus scenario for the first time or going back to the campus life after spending the vacation at home, there will be a period of adjustment, more so in the first scenario.
The first year of university is hard as compare to other years because you have to make a genuine place and adjustment in different kind of people, and when it comes to adjustment in university life so you would have to expect at least to get a cultural shock because of how different things would be compared to home or school. In addition, it is important to not get in an excitement over getting everything right. Give yourself some time, and expect to get a little puzzled, but always stay confident that eventually, you will come to love the university life.
Homesickness (For those who got away from home)
Since it is the first time being away from home for most students, homesickness can strike very hard on mental and physical behaviour. However, thanks to the modern means of communication, most students feeling homesick can stay connected with their parents, family members and friends over the internet.
Pin pressure on nerves of studies
Most students are paying their education expenses themselves so the pressure on them to get good grades is gigantic. Even if it is not them paying, there are still massive social and educational consequences or effects of not succeeding in the studies. I guess it's good to focus on learning and applying than thinking just to have a good GPA.
Cost of Education
Ever since the most recent increase in the cost of higher education in the Pakistan. The number of students seeking professional counselling which has significantly increased. And with the pressure of HOW & WHY the mental health issues are publicly seen more than ever in students according to a review by the authentic news. Well, you only can do one thing and that is; you should spend your time, most of the time in enjoying the time with friends and at the same time focus on studies as much as you can so you can complete your course in shortest or given time period.
Finding New Friends
It is difficult to make friends at a new place, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that you will have to fit in with people who have different interests in order to make new friends at university. You can be yourself and find friends at the same time, you just have to be patient and involve yourself in activities that you like.
From trying to study to living alone and doing the required chores, to maintaining a social life, to possibly working some sort of a job to help with expenses, students don’t have the “time” to manage and think about their time. They sleep in irregular patterns and do everything at the last minute. This kind of behaviour is unsustainable and therefore, you need to at least set a rough timetable and start utilizing your time much more efficiently. You will be surprised at the amount of free time you’ll start to have on your hands.
