According to the NCRB National Crime Records Bureau, failure in examination is one of the leading causes of suicide In India. In the light of the recent events, where a lot of students are becoming a target of depression triggered by examination pressure and failure in academia, it is the need of the day to make it mandatory for educational institutions to hire a counselor for students battling depression and anxiety. It is necessary to enforce counseling sessions for students who have failed in exams and engaging their parents in order to extend support and reduce the number of deaths due to suicide. A conversation is necessary to understand the mental state of students and provide them with the appropriate care and remove the taboo around seeking help.
