Founder Director of Team Future Dr. Mousumi Ghosh said, “The festival closely introspected depression as a dreaded disease of the 21′ century. According to a 2015 National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), every hour one student commits suicide in India. A WHO report of 2015 also stated that almost 5 crore Indians are suffering from depression and India is a major contributor to global suicides. Good Health Festival has been a beacon of light for those who are suffering from depression as well as an awareness program for the society.” In India ‘Depression’ is a rising menace caused by a host of factors such as economic, social, health issues to name a few. Depression can occur to anyone irrespective of their age. Most of the suicide victims in our country were dealing with depression. Health care though available is often ignored because of the stigma associated with the disease.
The event was followed by the final round of Inter College Poster competition and on ‘depression and stress management’ and prize distribution.
