Goa has a very high suicide rate and unfortunately a lot of people attempting to commit suicide are youth. To tackle this problem and to raise awareness on this very sensitive issue, The RiseNation Trust decided to launch the Suicide Prevention Campaign. During the Suicide Prevention Week in September, The RiseNation Trust carries out Suicide Prevention Workshops in colleges across Goa.
Last year during the Suicide Prevention Week, 14 workshops were carried out in different colleges in which the students were given tools to combat the suicidal thoughts and were taught how to live a stressfree, happy life. Follow ups are regularly carried out in the colleges building the kids into positive individuals.
