Healthy Minds for Youth

Why ?

  1. Depression – the Largest Killer by 2020 – WHO report
  2. 58% of youngsters in Mumbai had considered suicide. TOI survey: : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/58-of-youngsters-in-Mumbai-have-thought-of-suicide-Survey/articleshow/51850266.cms
  3. 38% of the youngsters indulge in Self-harm in various forms. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Self-harm-causing-most-youth-deaths-in-India/articleshow/52197036.cms
  4. One Minute Madness leading to 25 years of Jail and Repentance
  5. The new generation is so fraught with pressures, hyper expectations, family discord, experimentations, stress and anxieties that parenting becomes even more confusing, challenging and stressful. : Dr Zirak Marker – Reputed psychiatrist
  6. Every family – be it in any strata – seem to experience some degree of disquiet in terms of Marital Harmony, familial relationships, work-home balance and self-esteem.
  7. Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, our Ex-President had predicted and duly endorsed by the RBI, that India will be a Super Power by 2020. However, the citizens who will carry this forward and make this a reality seem to lack the skill.
  8. “Unhealthy Minds” – evident in Community – refer news and media
  9. Exponential increase in Violence and Crime and Erosion of Values among Peers.
  10. Education is no guarantee for Healthy Mind. Crime, Suicide and Disorganised Thought rampant among educated class.
  11. “Inner Poverty in the Midst of Outer Abundance” is indeed a curse on Society.
