VYG Help Event - 13 Reasons to Start Again
With an increase in the rate of suicide of youths in India, where about 28 suicides reported every day.
The VYG India conducted our second event "HELP", on September 20, 2020, in Perambur, Chennai to create suicide awareness. High rates of suicide indicate Youths at grave risk of losing mental equilibrium. Concerning this, we gave a motivational speech on "13 reasons to start again in life" to the youths, thereby giving them hope in life and building confidence within them.
On this National Suicide Prevention Month, the HELP group distributed letters representing our motto "Say No to Suicide" with our helpline number '988497475.'
The letters were distributed at various places enforcing the motto, illustrating that there's a way out from self-mutilation.
In addition, we followed the rules and regulations, of the authorities of India, through social distancing, hand sanitizing, and checking the temperature. To ensure the safety of everyone.
