What is Psychology?

The scientific study of how humans behave, think and feel. Dealing about everything from basic workings of the brain to much complex topics such as consciousness, intelligence, personality, and mental health.

Why Bother Teaching Psychology to Students?

The era in which the mankind is prospering needs/begs for people having the skill set and knowledge of understanding the problems of fellow human beings. As the graphs of depression/clinical depression, anxiety disorder, paranoia as well as suicides are all time high. It clearly indicates we are lacking somewhere, as huge chaos is slithering under our feet.

Psychology makes a person understand his/her own mental world as well as others, promoting sympathy and empathy in the society, which leads to a much peaceful world of humans. Students gain not just social and emotional learning skills but academic ones too, like how to conduct and analyze research. Studying psychology could help promote many of the social and emotional learning (SEL) skills that are crucial to students' academic achievements and mental health.

Benifits of Basic Knowledge of Psychology in Future

Whether a student chooses to pursue medicine, law or business having basic knowledge of psychological understanding would help a person in any field.

A person would have a better way of understanding and interacting with his/her clients or patients, colleagues, friends, family and people around them.
And basically people studying psychology always have a better control and understanding of their own mental health and emotions.
Also, psychology makes a person socially aware and enhances his/her communicational and behavioural skills.

The Final Appeal

We want the subject (Psychology) added to our curriculum as an optional subject starting from class 11th, as many students are passionate about devoting their life to this discipline but are let down by the absence of such a crucial subject in their schools.
