Imphal, Oct. 10
World mental health day observed on 10th October 2019, by the Department of Psychology, Manipur University. The function was inaugurated by the V.C. of University, Jarnail Singh with the release of pamphlet highlighting mental health and suicide prevention. With little awareness about mental health, which is the state of psychological well- being, in our region and a global scale of suicide every 40 seconds, the department recognised the gravity of suicide prevention. Faculties and students took this opportunity to raise awareness and campaigned about mental health in other departments and distributed pamphlets inside the campus. The pamphlets talked about suicide as of the leading cause of death, risk factors, our role in intervention of it. The event was concluded with a tree plantation drive inside the campus.
