As an Ambassador of the @britishasiantst I am particularly passionate about their mental health awareness work as it is an area that needs to be talked about here in Pakistan. There is still a huge need for more #mentalhealth support across different sectors which is why it was so great to see representatives from so many sectors come together to talk about it. There needs to be more work done for prevention and early intervention amongst our youth in particular. It's is not only about creating awaress but providing support for them. There are so so many stress factors we face at home, at school, at the work place, in our communities, and on social media etc. It is important to develop coping strategies for this from as early as possible. We need more discussions to educate ourselves and update our systems, we need to hear people's stories, find out where it is we are failing as individuals, as society or as a nation when it comes to dealing with mental health issues which are on the rise. Anxiety, depression and sucidice rates are on the rise amongst our youth, and that's not OK. I'm extremely grateful to have met some people running fantastic NGOS, private practices and schools working towards this. I also met people who were battling mental health issues, people who had lost a loved one to it and people who are so ready to help anyone who is looking for someone to turn to. We need to work collectively for a healthier, happier Pakistan. Atia Naqvi a psychologist ready to help anyone in need. @projectwellnesspk @hajrakhan.14 a real inspiration for young women. @taskeenpakistan Amongst many others.
