Schooling is an important stage in any individual’s lifespan that often leaves a lasting impression on the individual’s personality, well-being and future academic or professional success. During school years, academic burden, parental expectation, family issues and peer pressure may result in the child or adolescent developing emotional problems. These problems may manifest themselves in the form of unhealthy coping mechanisms such as depression, anxiety or anger and negatively impact the child’s self-concept.

Assessing emotional well-being of every school-going child and adolescent is important in order to offer timely support and intervention for emotional and behavioural disturbances. If not checked, these emotional difficulties may impede academic, personal and social growth, resulting in a lifetime of difficulties for such individuals.
