Kabul: Kabul Experts said girl students of Afghanistan, who are studying above grade six, are facing mental health troubles.
Saeeda, a student in grade 10, told Tolo News she dreams of being a doctor in the future.
Saeeda said she is afraid to not reach her dreams now because girls beyond grade six are not allowed to go to school.
“I am very disappointed that the schools were not reopened. It is the right of every girl to have access to education,” said Saeeda, a student in grade 10.
“We seriously don’t know what type of situation this is. We should go to school to make our future,” Setayish, a student, told Tolo News.
Mental health experts feel stopping the girls from going to school is affecting their mental health.
“When someone likes something and is prevented from doing it, it causes mental stress and anxiety. The girls who like education and are not allowed to engage in it, it causes them mental pressure,” Jamshid Rasa, a psychologist, told Tolo News.
