“Please help me teacher. I am feeling like going to die. Lately I cannot learn, could not sleep. Life is meaningless!” That is how the sigh and complaint from a pupil or student to her teacher.
To those whose professions are teacher, counselor, lecturer, psychologist or social worker, they are sure to have ever received the same complain. In most of the cases, the students are actually facing a depression problem (sadness). The condition is quite usual especially once when students face examinations. Let alone with the high hope from their parents.
