Rappler Talk: How can distance learning affect a student's mental health?

Students are experiencing burnout from having to adapt to the demands of distance learning.

After receiving reports about students being overwhelmed by the new system, the Department of Education (DepEd) urged teachers to give a "reasonable" amount of tasks in class to prevent burnout.

The DepEd also released a statement on Tuesday, October 20, appealing to the public to "stop directly connecting" the deaths of its teachers and students to the distance learning system. (READ: Students' mental health issues during distance learning due to 'interplay of factors' – expert)

The DepEd shifted to distance learning this school year to comply with President Rodrigo Duterte's directive for schools to delay face-to-face classes until a coronavirus vaccine becomes available.

In this Rappler Talk episode, Rappler's education and health reporter Bonz Magsambol talks to Dr Joan Rifareal of the Philippine Psychiatric Association about the state of mental health of students during the pandemic.
