Squid Game is a South Korean TV series that has been hugely successful worldwide.

I read with great interest the article published on this blog last week by four students. I don’t want to focus on the central topic of the article, which in my opinion deserves more in-depth analysis and maybe even a discussion with them, but I have grasped its intelligence.
In that article students ask themselves many questions without wanting to find an immediate answer.
The 2020-2021 period had to win the struggle with the mental-health taboo, because the diffusion of the Covid-19 had expanded the necessity of approaching this argument in our time with more bravery. We want to reflect on this.
In our opinion mental health is still a secondary theme compared to physical wellbeing. It is thought that in 10 years the mental weakness will pass the physical disease because mental health is one of most disregarded areas of public health. “ Mens sana in corpore sano” , a Latin proverb; perhaps Latin believed in a correspondence between these two and in this pandemic period this one could not be obvious.
