Microblogging platform Koo has launched a special initiative in collaboration with the Fortis National Mental Health Programme to address examination stress.


Speaking on the campaign and the dire need to combat exam-related stress in an effective way, a Koo spokesperson said: “Koo – as an innovative platform – promotes dialogue between people on a variety of important topics across a slew of native Indian languages. The issue of exam-related stress is something almost every student and their parents go through. Thus, a freewheeling chat with experts in native languages could help students and parents manage their stress levels better. We believe that social media platforms can play a significant role in knowledge sharing on key issues like stress management and combating exam fever to help build a happy India.”


Added Dr Samir Parikh, Director-Fortis National Mental Health Programme, Fortis Healthcare: “Each year a huge number of students and their parents experience significant stress that builds up on account of the pressure of examinations. It’s always better to discuss and express what one is feeling through conversations. Providing the right tools and skills which have a scientific basis to students and their parents are crucially important in helping them manage their anxiety and perform at an optimum level. It’s imperative that exams be seen as a methodology to teach students critical life skills and not just as a mechanism to procure marks.”
