Get counseling before you Suicide: Helpline Number in Shimla

In this competitive era every parent want his/her child to be among the best whether it be education, sports or other activities. It is good that parents should have expectations from their kids but excessive expectation leads to extra burden and pressure on the children. All students are not of the same caliber neither all can excel in the same field. Some are good at studies, some in sports, music and other activities.

Demanding the kids to top in the class, secure 90% marks, restricting from the things they find interesting creates a kind of mental pressure on the children. The inefficiency of achieving these so called parents expectations, ultimately develops a fear inside the child and leads to worst acts like suicides. In the recent years we have seen many students ending up their life, just because they missed a mark to pass in subject. They didn't die because they had failed but with the fear, how to face the parents. This is not a matter of Shimla or Himachal Pradesh, suicide among students is rampant throughout the nation and in the past years the percentage as surged.

It is good news for Himachali's that, Youth Enlightening the Society (YES) Group, has taken an initiative to stop the growing student suicides in the state. In order to provide right counseling to the students, a helpline number will be started in Shimla from 5th September onwards. If any students is under pressure and is at the verge of committing suicide, he/she can get a proper counseling and a single call can save many lives. This helpline service is named as Dial Before You Die.

Dial Before You Die Helpline Number, Shimla: 08894692269

Currently the authorities have said they have not been able to get the toll free number, so normal charges will be charged on this call. YES Group has also started School Groups in various schools of Shimla with the aim to reduce the burden of education and get relieved from mental pressure and depression. These groups will be headed by school students only. This activity has already been started in St. Thomas school and will soon be started in Chapslee and Auckland House School.
