Mental Health issues are always considered a taboo in our society. People usually don't seek help, because of the stigma attached with depression & mental illness.
Your donation will help in detaching the taboo attached with Mental Health & it will enable us to provide help and care to affected people, as well as it will help us in bringing mental health issues forefront.
WHY WE NEED HELP
Since 2018, we have saved more than 2000 lives, through our Whatsapp based chatline. It's a free chatline, which is operated manually, by an individual, and works like a crisis text service. We are volunteers & now we plan to extend our work for suicide intervention, prevention, awareness and education.
We believe in a healthy society. Depression is treatable. Suicide is preventable. We believe the most important thing in a person’s life is “peace of mind”. Depression can be devastating. Jobs come to an end, relationships break down and lives can be lost, all resulting into depression. That’s why the work we do is so important – it not only changes lives but saves them.
WHAT WILL WE DO
- We will establish a call center to facilitate calls / text messages of people who are in an emergency & want to seek help.
- We will establish a center for mental health care, where we will conduct recovery sessions for people who are impacted with depression, providing them hope & not shame, giving them treatment rather than rejection.
- We will take mental health professionals on board, and will conduct sessions in universities & schools, to help students in capacity building who are taking pressure of grades & studies.
- We will launch a nationwide campaign, using social media, print and electronic media, creating awareness about sensitivity of issue, & how important it is to seek help. We will provide help and hope through online chat, college campus and high school events and other educational programs.
