The proposition for the initiation of YUVATHI:
In the past decade mental health problems have emerged as an important cause of a detrimental social condition. Although adolescence and young adulthood are generally considered healthy times of life, several important emotional and social behavioral problems either start or peak during these years. Available evidence indicates that young people are prone to a number of psychological and physical health conditions due to personal choices, environmental influences and lifestyle changes.
Children’s physical, emotional status, as well as their social and cognitive development, greatly depends on their family dynamics. The rising incidence of behavioral problems among children and adolescence could suggest that some families are struggling to cope with the increasing stresses they are experiencing. Parents have greater responsibility in guiding their children but due to cultural barriers and various stressful events they find it difficult in connecting with their children. The stress factors may include unhealthy relationship with spouse, household chores, work-place pressure, physical stress and relationship with in-laws. Most of the children’s behavioral issues and disorders are unidentified because of parent’s ignorance and negligence.
It is essential to give equal importance to other key areas like mental health services and Behavioral Change Communication towards healthy lifestyle.
A recent survey by Nielsen has revealed that Indian women are the most stressed out in the world: 87% of our women feel stressed out most of the time. Even in workaholic American’s, only 53% women feel stressed.
There is a strong need for public health communities to identify, prepare, integrate and implement activities that help to promote health and healthy lifestyles for young people and establish mechanisms for delivery of population-based interventions along with measuring its impact. There is a need to generate good quality and robust population data that can drive policies and programmes. Strategic investments in health, nutrition, education, employment and welfare are critical for healthy growth of young people and these programmes need to be monitored and evaluated for their efficacy and effectiveness using public health approaches.
