Jay Salia started this petition to PMO India Mr. Narendra Modi (Government of India) and

No. of suicides in the country are so high that it is considered a "normality." I can't fathom this. 

If mental health education is instilled in a person from school, and then onto college, then there is a very good chance of that number going down. 

For example, since primary school, students should be educated with Yoga and how to have control over their senses, their bodies. As they grow more mature, they should be educated on how to deal with complex emotions like stress, anxiety, fear, depression, etc. How to deal with pressure? 

And the fact that seeking out mental health should be a NORMALCY. This can only be taught from the beginning.

And these lectures shouldn't be taken lightly that any math or science teacher would take away their lecture to complete their syllabus. NO. It should be treat with, if not more, then as much importance as bookish academics. 

I genuinely hope this reaches the people who can make a difference.
