Mental health has always been close to my heart. As a physician I see people come in with all kinds of physical pain and most of it is easy to handle what is difficult for both the patient and us as healthcare workers is emotional and psychological trauma or pain. This may lingers for a lifetime and distrups the quality of life. There is hope though, admitting that you need someone to talk to is the first step and honestly is the biggest step, the journey after that is much easier. We at Umang welcome you to reach out to us. Be it depression, suicidality, stress, relationship issues, anything that is bothering you, we are here to listen and help you through it. You are not alone, so let's fight this together.

“Umang are a team of young ambitious individuals wanting to make a significant change in society. We want mental health to be discussed without any prejudice and discrimination. It is about time we address taboo subjects like depression and suicidal ideation. Counselling is still a fairly new concept in Pakistan due to lack of awareness. Our mission is to provide a free of cost service 24/7. Actions speak louder than words and through this medium people will come to realise how effective counselling therapy is.”

Mental health touches us all - perhaps in a bright smile. In a loud laugh. In the happiest of our moments. From the strongest to the weakest of all, mental illness happens. It is as real as a physical illness. Let us not ignore those who go through this on a daily basis in silence. The unseen and the unknown is as life threatening as the seen and the known. We have taken a step to end the suffering in silence of many.This platform is our initiative in battling the mental health stigma. What’s yours?
