Bechara Mein: I want to be a mental care provider but.......?
 
IMA represent the collective consciousness of over three lakh medical practitioners in the country.
 
During our MBBS, we were not taught any subject like mental health or mental well-being. Psychiatry was taught in a few lectures. During internship, psychiatry was less than a week posting with no psychiatrist in the faculty. During my MD medicine, psychiatry was just a touch-and-go subject. But we were still taught that health is not mere absence of disease but a state of physical and mental well- being.
 
As per the WHO, 1 in 4 persons will suffer from mental disorder in their life time and 10% of us at any given time suffer from mental disease.
 
About 800,000 people commit suicide worldwide every year, of these 135,000 (17%) are in India. Every 40 seconds a life is lost through suicide worldwide. The suicide rate in India is 11.5 % per lakh and every 3 seconds a person attempts to die. Suicide is one of the top three causes of death among the young in the age group of 15-35 years.
