The Students of Classes 9 to 12 had an interactive session on 30 October 2018 in which they were addressed by Dr. Meenakshi Bharath, Gynaecologist, from Cart Fertility Centre and Dr. Satish Ramaiah, Neuropsychiatrist, from People Tree Hospital, Yeshwanthpur, Bengaluru. Dr. Meenakshi Bharath discussed with girls about topics such as menstrual cycle, personal hygiene and also encouraged to spread awareness among the neighbourhood on using various methods of sustainable menstruation. Dr. Satish Ramaiah dealt with issues such as substance misuse, peer pressure, emotional stress and family factors that lead to addictions while speaking to boys. The sessions also highlighted aspects of adolescent life, balanced diet and ways to cope with social and psychological pressure.
These sessions were received well by the students and there were many queries from the students. The interaction opened students' minds towards the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
