Accordingly to WHO every 40 second someone commit suicide in world.It's unfortunate to see people losing out on mental well-being at younger and younger age group.

Problem in hand:

1. Stigmatization of mental health

2. Lack of awareness on mental health issues, signs and symptoms.

3. Lack of awareness to parents and teachers to recognise mental health issues with their students.

With limited number of mental health professionals across country. It's difficult to provide services to all.

Suggested plan:

The plan to is to Include mandatory training for teachers, students in schools and colleges. 

1. Teachers and parents are usually role models for students if they follow these training and spread awareness that's it's ok to have mental health issues. There will be de-stigmatization of same.

2. Awareness on mental health and wellbeing for students and teachers. 

3. PROACTIVELY Train to build their own RESILIENCY mechanism for students and teachers. 

We never know how many lives we can save by this. 

According to WHO data "In recent years, there has been increasing acknowledgement of the important role mental health plays in achieving global development goals, as illustrated by the inclusion of mental health in the Sustainable Development Goals. Depression is one of the leading causes of disability. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. People with severe mental health conditions die prematurely – as much as two decades early – due to preventable physical conditions. Two of the most common mental health conditions, depression and anxiety, cost the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year."
