A Live Session with Dr. Dipal Patel about Mental Health and Parenting

Dr. Dipal Patel, a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist who also serves as the Director of the Insight Cell at Parul University, will be the guest on this RJ’s Instagram Live Session. She reveals that the cell looks after the mental health of both the university’s faculty members and students. She was interested in understanding human behaviour since she was in the 8th grade as she has a background in psychology and the military.

During this Live Session, her opinions on several mental health topics were discussed. She began by stating that while there is no major issue, there is less tolerance in the youth today. In her account, she discusses the difficulties that today’s teens and young children experience, including test anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, depression, and other mental illnesses. She emphasises the need to avoid excessive societal pressure when it comes to school and board exams. She advises parents to turn studying into a fun process rather than a chore or liability. She discussed the artificial pressure that parents put on their children as part of her parenting advice. She advises parents to be on the side of the kids, listen intently, encourage them in every circumstance, and let go a little.

She added that 70% of the students that visit her use drugs as a way to escape reality and the harsh outside world. She advises parents to participate in their children’s enjoyment so that they won’t need to find ways to get away from the cruel world. Confidential and respectful communication with their children offers them confidence that you are there to support them and won’t make things worse. She claims that rather than the students, the parents need to adapt.

She advises the pupils to learn to appreciate the moment in order to live in the moment.She wants children to develop self-confidence and to accept themselves for who they are.

She wants children to develop self-confidence and to accept themselves for who they are. She emphasises how teaching life lessons is more crucial than competitive battles over grades. In contrast to having a healthy brain, being envious of your friends’ achievements will only make them depressed.

Instead of worrying about anything, she encourages everyone to unwind and enjoy life.
