Mental Health in IIT Madras, Article 4: Anonymous Op-Ed

If you’re a person with mental illness reading this, whether an IITian or a non-IITian, fret not because this can be dealt with and you are not alone. Remember, I cleared the toughest examination on this planet even without knowing I had the illness. So stay strong and keep moving forward. If you are an outsider wanting to know about the situation in this institution, just look at the situation of mental health awareness at your own place before sending out judgements about the IITs. And If you are a student/parent/professional — inside or outside IIT– who knows someone dealing with mental illnesses, please be patient enough to lend your kindness and support to him/her.
