Students anxious about school reopening, difficulty with online lessons, and examinations made up more than half the callers seeking counselling in the past six months in Bhutan.

693 people (305 males and 351 females) reached out to counsellors on the Sherig Counselling Service, a Facebook page between March and August 28. About 37 of the clients who sought counselling preferred to be counselled through text without sharing their gender details.

More than half (451) of them were students followed by teachers, parents and others, who did not want to disclose their details.

The career education and counselling division created Sherig Counselling Service page to cater to students and as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Five additional counsellors from the career education and counselling division also attend to the students from Thimphu.
