Subsequent to this incident, the varsity authorities were requested to set up a “wellness centre” by the Delhi University Student Union in all colleges of the university.
Mahamedhaa Nagar, the secretary of the Delhi University Student Union (DUSU) wrote a letter to the vice-chancellor expressing his feelings in favour of the students. He conveyed his genuine concern of students not being able to manage their stress and fail to vent out their inner thoughts at home or at school or college. There are countless students who undergo the problem of Identity Crisis. The power of future uncertainty leads to self-isolation and eventually slipping into depression and hence it was important to set up a “wellness centre” where students will be able to open up and seek the help and guidance they need to get through their tough time.
