“Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention Program”
Every 40 seconds one person dies of suicidal death in world. Every year more than 8 lakhs and 1.32 lakhs die of suicide across the world and India respectively. In India highest rate of suicide is amongst the age group of 15-29 years.
Looking to this disturbing scenario, P4p initiated actions to create awareness about suicide and steps for its prevention. Only giving motivational lectures is not the solution to this serious problem. So Parenting For Peace movement launched a very unique program for creating awareness about mental health and suicide prevention. It basically helps in imparting scientific knowledge and evidence based facts about suicide. Initially it was conducted at colleges as for youth empowerment but then also conducted at various social institutes
YOLO is a program which gives scientific knowledge about various aspects of suicide i.e statistics, reasons responsible for suicides, identifying signs of suicidal tendencies, how we are supposed to handle potentially suicidal persons, what we are not supposed to do, myths about suicide, life style and mind set changes etc. This scientific information is conveyed to the audience in a very light entertaining and interactive manner. There are skits, music, activities along with interesting power point presentation to keep audience glued to the topic. Hard-core scientific material on a serious topic like suicide is imparted in a very relaxing way
This program sensitizes the audience about the gravity of situation about suicide. It has been conducted at least 50 different places and is highly appreciated. In fact there are institutes where it was repeatedly conducted for students especially for fresher’s batch.
YOLO is a humble effort by P4P movement in saving lives of thousands of human beings across the world.
