Online Panel Discussion: Why India needs a Suicide Prevention Strategy NOW

September 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

While suicide is a public health issue, the role of the education, labour, agriculture, rural development, and several other departments is equally important in reducing suicides in the country. Given the various social, personal, and cultural risk factors that lead to deaths by suicide or attempted suicides, comprehensive interventions and policies are required at multiple levels through the coordinated efforts across agencies and sectors.

Join us for an online panel discussion this month featuring participants from the field who are actively involved in the intersection of mental health, health system policy and suicide prevention.
