Daily Lives Ep3 : The Wellness Centre
Since the onset of the pandemic, terms like mental health and wellness have been thrown around a lot, for reasons that are obvious to all.
In this episode of the Daily Lives Series, we catch hold of two Clinical Psychologists of the Wellness Centre, IITM and engage in a meaningful conversation with them about the types of issues they often see within the student community, how they deal with it, how we should look at the brighter side of things in life.
We also get an insight into the well structured mental health help system IITM has set up and how many students can take advantage of it.
Listen until the end to find out how Jinna and Arun soothed the anxieties of the students while navigating through their own ups and downs.
Daily Lives Ep2 : MBA Edition
MBA is one of the most coveted post graduate degrees for students of all backgrounds. It is no secret that for all its hype, MBA involves a lot of stress and extremely hectic schedules.
We decided to talk to two people who did their MBA from insti to find out what the real picture is. What all does an MBA at IITM offer? What is the student ecosystem for it? Join us as our guests Karan Jassal and Navneet Kaur fondly recollect their memories of insti and share their story with us.
Listen and share!
