Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Ayesha Bano presented he resolution in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) assembly for psychologists as faculty in schools and colleges and which was passed with majority approval.
It has been noticed that like adults, children also struggle with psychological pressure. Too many commitments, conflict in their families and problems with peers are all stressors that overwhelm children.
It is observed with concern that due to domestic issues and societal pressures, and due to lack of awareness children are prone to use drugs and attempt suicide. Moreover, child abuse incidents are repeatedly reported, and are on the rise in our society.
This house demands that
1. Schools those are charging Rs. 5000 or more fee per month should have e a psychologist as a part of the faculty
2. Whereas schools charging less than Rs. 5000 fee should arrange at least one session per week for the students with a psychologist
3. All colleges should have a psychologist as a part of the faculty
