India is facing a serious mental health crisis, with an estimated 56 million people suffering from depression and 38 million from anxiety disorders, according to a report by the World Health Organisation.
Mental distress is believed to be a key reason why one student commits suicide every hour in the country.
Many more attempt suicide. Suicide occurs throughout the lifespan and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds globally.
The nation’s youth is suffering with one of the most painful and debilitating illnesses. Depression can leave youth feeling worthless, guilty, and devoid of hope.
Mental health is not often a popular topic of conversation due to stigma and fear, leaving students afraid to talk about these serious feelings.
