Pieces of art and poetry works by pupils from various schools and universities based on the theme of 'dealing with challenges of one's life' were exhibited at the workshop.

Movies were also screened to relax those under stress.

"Firstly, the people must know what depression is. Most of the people have been suffering under stress and depression, but are not aware of it. I thank the MSF to have organized this workshop for us. People need to know that they need counseling," said Suhail, a college student.
