Ashoka's residential setting offers a unique opportunity for students to intimately be part of a strong, opinionated and active community. In this context, students may become vulnerable to stress and anxiety that comes with achieving perfect grades and coping with the social demands of campus life.
The physical and emotional separation from hometowns and families adds to the aforementioned adjustment issues. Consequently, students have been found to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. The Centre is focused on early intervention and capacity building.
“Members of a community are best suited to support each other. Our team of counselors, professionals and volunteers offer a range of services to help Ashoka community in building emotional resources and developing better coping strategies“- Arvinder J. Singh.
