Young Mental Health by Meera Haran Alva and Amrita Tripathi - Book Review

Mental health awareness is still not exclusive as it ought to be. We talk about mental health and suicide prevention when a celebrity dies in mysterious circumstances. The social media would be flooded with hashtags nut once the interest dies down, awareness talks end.


 'Young Mental Health' is the second book in the Mindscape series by Amrita Tripathi and Meera Haran Alva. I started off with the second book first.

How do we talk about mental health? Are we having the sometimes-difficult conversations that we need to with our children? And why is all this more relevant than ever in India? Read young mental health to find out. 

Leave with Young Mental Health Awareness

The book is like a pandora's box. a cascade of interviews is more than enough for someone to read and know about how to take help and when. It talks about various aspects of the topic. Conditions like depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, etc are all used colloquially so much that the real issue is not addressed. The author has left no stone unturned to enlighten the readers about the need to take mental health issues seriously. The awareness should start with the difference between being sad and depressed, being naughty and hyperactive, and many more. The book also deals with eating disorders and body image disorders. 

Co-authored by Amrita Tripathi and Meera Haran Alva, and featuring a foreword and key interview with leading child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Amit Sen, the book relies on interviews, lived experience, and story-telling through Comics to share a unique insight into what it means to be an adolescent or young adult in India today, the kinds of pressure and stressors they face and how to start approaching some serious – even life-saving – conversations.

The novel attempt by the authors:

The initiative by the authors is commendable. The book can be an eye-opener and savior for scores of young kids and their parents. This must be read by everyone to know what is happening around them. You might be able to helo your kids, or kids of your relatives, or friends.

  16. There are many types of psychotherapy, each with its own approach to improving your mental well-being. Psychotherapy often can be successfully completed in a few months, but in some cases, long-term treatment may be needed. It can take place one-on-one, in a group or with family members. online therapy
