A seminar on 'Mental Health & Well-Being' was organized for UG and PG students by Career Development and Guidance Centre (CDGC), Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh on 8th April 2019 as a part of MOU signed with Round Glass College Well Being program.

The seminar focussed on the importance of being healthy both mentally and physically, citing various examples from the everyday life. The seminar was aimed at fostering students to understand emotional well-being and take note of their daily activities and how are they affecting their minds. 'Dr. Dhaval Mody' (Director, Round Glass College Wellbeing Program) headlined the Seminar and also explained the different types of stresses students of teenage group usually go through including peer and family pressure.

The seminar started with an interaction session with the students where they shared their views on mental and physical health. The students of UG (First and Second year) and PG (First year) from all the branches actively participated in the tasks which were given at hand to demonstrate the ways our mind works. Students also shared their feelings about how they usually feel under pressure. The motive of the seminar was to make the students aware that they are not alone facing these issues but all of them have some kind of stress or worries. Also the fact that physical and mental health go hand in hand was also exemplified.

The students really enjoyed the seminar and also felt relieved sharing their day to day issues.

The seminar concluded with the students being provided forms to fill, in order to be a part of this nationwide program , followed by a questionnaire round on how we can have a more proactive approach to improve our mental health.
