These Mumbai School Students Self-Published A Mental Health Book To Help Out Youngsters

Looks like the future is in good hands.

ReachOut is a mental health awareness campaign started by students of the Cathedral & John Connon School in Mumbai.

The 100-odd volunteers of the group, who are from the same school, have published three self-help books for different age groups.

The book contains student surveys that help determine how mental health is an issue that isn't being talked about nearly as much as it should be.

It also contain illustrations and writings submitted by the students of the school.

The book is divided into different sections dedicated to some of the most common mental ailments plaguing youngsters.

Saumya Sinha, a 12th grade student of the school, told BuzzFeed India how the idea for the book came about.

"At first, we started a visual campaign, and started putting up posters around school, but a lot of people wanted to be part of it, so we decided to make a book."

"Initially, about 15-20 students would visit the counsellor in a week. Now, over 100 students are talking to the counsellor on a weekly basis," Sinha said.

Looks like the future of India is in good hands.
