In Jamshedpur the rate of suicide has gone up in the recent years. So, organizations like “Jeevan” are taking positive steps to curb this menace. As suicide is a growing health concern, it was emphasized to look for some possible warning signs such as talking about dying, recent loss, change in personality, change in behaviour , low esteem etc. Students were asked to help out when they see drastic changes in their friends and relatives.
Students were explained how Act therapy can help the individual who is showing suicidal tendency and save a precious life. Act therapy deals with ASK, CARE and TREAT which says ASK if someone is thinking about suicide , let them know we CARE for them and give TREATment as soon as possible because LIFE COUNTS.
