A psychiatric nurse at the Ajumako Government Hospital in the Central Region, Mr. Desmond Egyiri Manu, has explained that only teachers could help prevent the suicidal problems Ghana is currently facing.
According to him, teachers-students relationship should be improved, so that students can share their problems with them, adding that teachers should be flexible and friendly so that students can approach them, if they are facing any challenges.
Mr. Manu, who made this known in an interview with The Republic during the celebration of the 5th Quadrennial and 52nd District Delegates’ Conference for Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) in Ajumako, said teachers are the only first person a student may approach more than their parents and other bodies if difficulties arise.
“Pastors, parents and others cannot prevent suicidal situations without teachers, so I am appealing to the teachers to be friendly to the students so, that they can approach them, their records shows that students involve themselves in this suicidal problems more than any other people,” he pointed out.
