Student Support Center (SSC) provides free and confidential direct individual counseling services for a variety of concerns including, stress, burnout, time management, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, and other matters related to a student's overall mental well-being. The Center also provides resource information on wellness topics and is responsible for student outreach programming designed to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.


Aim

Aims to provide comprehensive services under one roof to the students/staff. JSS AHER is a university that is constantly striving to maintain international standards of excellence, certainly in academic output, but equally in the holistic emotional, mental, and physical well-being of its students/staff. The World Health Organization has identified depression as the single largest contributor and the leading cause of mental and physical disability across the world. It is the second leading cause of death (by suicide) in the 15 - 29 years age group. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, a suicide is committed in India every five minutes and a third of all suicides in India fall within this age group. The Student Support Centre has linked with the WHO campaign on raising awareness around mental health and aspires to contribute to public education about issues that affect young people, such as sexual abuse, suicide, and substance abuse. etc.


Objectives

  • To offer practical and constructive support to students in adjusting to a new environment as well as social or personal challenges that are specific to their age group and circumstances.
  • To spread awareness about ways to cope with academic pressures that often lead to mental health difficulties, and to assist students with the academic concerns that emerge from dealing with any short or long-term health condition.
  • To treat mental and physical disabilities as not merely a pathological problem but as a more complex situation that requires the care of specialists who offer constant support through long periods of treatment and recovery.
  • To help combat the general social taboos associated with anxieties and depression on campus, and to foster a positive outlook among students.
  • To establish the University campus as a student-friendly safe space that is sensitive to physical and mental disabilities.
