#Su***de prevention efforts require collaboration among multiple sectors of society ... as no single approach alone can make an impact on an issue as complex as su***de.

The message of Parliamentary Secretary Ms. Kanwal Shauzab on #WorldSu***dePreventionDay

10/09/2021

We must remember that every #su***de is a cry for help. As a member of society, we have to play our role in providing #support to those experiencing crisis.

#WorldSu***dePreventionDay

The Government of Pakistan recognizes importance of #psychosocial #health in the lifespan of individuals. #Su***de is also a key public health priority hence, a Mental Health Coordination Unit has been set up at the Planning Ministry. The Ministry is also launching a mobile application “#mhGAP_PK” which will help primary care physicians to help people who are at risk for #su***de. The initiative will be rolled out to the provinces and special regions as well.
