Lahore: On February 28, 2020, students of Grade 7 from Beaconhouse Walton Campus Lahore, hosted an event addressing Mental Health Awareness. Mental Health has been a topic of many controversies. Despite the evolving mindsets of people, this topic still has been hidden behind a curtain of stigma for far too long.

Students depicted the cloistered scenario, in a thought-provoking display, by placing tape on their mouths and holding placards with questions. This simple, yet effective method spoke volumes. The power of asking the right questions, can sometimes lead to unlocking forbidden territories.

The event concluded with a role-play addressing ‘anxiety’ in young children. The play beautifully displayed the agony and torture suffered by the affected, emphasizing the importance of timely treatment.
