If the ministry of education's models is right, there are over twelve thousand students within the country's education system suffering from mental illness and in need of targeted therapy.

The estimate came from this morning's sitting of the joint select committee of parliament to look into the state of mental care for the nation's children.

Reporter Urvashi Tiwari Roopnarine has the details.
