In the present time, children are exposed to many positive as well as negative habits and activities through different agencies at very early stage. When they reach adolescent stage and get scope and freedom, they want to gratify their curiosity for which many of them develop and adopt bad habits that not only distract them from healthy behavior but also put them in risk and endanger their lives.

Consuming tobacco, alcohol and drugs; being involved in sexuality; and being infected by HIV/AIDS are very common among the adolescents, which are considered as the risky behavior of the adolescents. In Mizoram, some parents and guardians usually give freedom to children to decide about their carrier and activities and have less interference in their activities, more particularly from adolescent period onwards.

Title:
Mental Health and Job Satisfaction of College Teachers
Abstract:

Education is the most powerful and influencing medium of development. Teachers are the pivot of all the educational institution. The future of a nation and the quality of any educational institution mainly depends on the teachers. Quality of education mostly depends on the teachers and quality of teachers depends on their personal as well as the professional quality. So, it is necessary to improve the quality and effectiveness of the teachers. Mental health and job satisfaction are the two pre-requisites of the teachers. Both of these are important for the teachers to perform their duties and responsibilities properly. The Indian Education Commission (1966) described teacher as one of the most important factors contributing to the national development. The best system of education may fail to achieve the desired ends in the absence of sincere, competent and professionally aware teachers. National Policy on Education (1986) rightly stated “No pupils can rise above the level of its teachers”. Effective teachers are required in the classroom because even the best curriculum and most perfect syllabus remain ineffective in the absence of a good teacher. Tagore has rightly said that “only lighted lamp can lighten another” which means that only an enlightened teacher who remain ever alive and struggling in the pursuit of knowledge, could enlighten his pupils and could enthuse them for more learning. The teachers should be a model to his own image in the mind of his teachers. It is the teacher who can create a national perspective for understanding social and economic difference in the nation.
