Government to appoint one child psychologist in each upazila: Dipu Moni

The government will appoint a child psychologist in each upazila of the country, said Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni.

The child psychologist will train two teachers, including a female, in every school regarding the psychological aspects so that they can resolve different complications of their students through counseling, she said.

Dr Dipu Moni made the remarks while addressing a virtual event titled “Let’s talk on youth education and skills” as the chief guest on Saturday morning.   

Mentioning that youths of the country suffer from psychological complications as they are harassed in different ways, Dipu Moni said on many occasions they even commit suicide.

The students are depressed mentally due to Covid-19, the education minister said, adding that considering all issues, the education ministry is thinking to appoint one child psychologist in each district at the primary stage and later in each upazila of the country.
