Online Desk ; Education Minister Dipu Moni said the government is planning to appoint a child psychologist in each upazila to support and provide counselling services to students.
“The psychologist will train male and female teachers in each school on mental health issues, so that teachers can solve various psychological problems of the students through counseling,” she said.
The minister was speaking as chief guest at an online discussion on the theme, “Let’s Talk on Youth Education and Skills,” organized by
the Centre for Research and Information (CRI) and Young Bangla on Saturday.
Dipu Moni said one child psychologist will be appointed in each district in the initial stage. Subsequently, one child psychologist will be appointed in each upazila, she added.
“Youths are sensitive. Various questions always arise in their minds. Some are harassed and victimized in various ways at home,
outside or at educational institutions. Because of this, they suffer from various mental problems, including depression and frustration, which may push them into committing suicide,” she added.
The minister also said the mental health of many students had suffered during the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the Ministry of Education was thinking of appointing one child psychologist in each upazila of the country, she added.
The Expatriate Welfare Minister said about 18 ministries and agencies of the country, including the National Skills Development Authority, has been working on skill development.
Secretary of Madrasa and Technical Education Department M Aminul Islam Khan also participated, among others.
