THERE is no health without mental health.
This was the message portrayed to the students of Valebasoga Secondary School by the final year nursing students of the Labasa Sangam College of Nursing yesterday afternoon.
The students made power point presentations on mental health and performed a mime show on how a person living with mental disorder committed suicide as a result of the illness.
In an earlier interview, college director Mahalaksmi Prabhu said this was part of their mental health awareness program contribution to the community.
She said the program was also part of their curriculum where students would be assessed through their community outreach presentations.
Ms Prabhu said their program was also organised upon the request from the members of the community.
The students and management of Valebasoga Secondary School conveyed their gratitude to the student nurses for taking their time out to educate them on mental health.
