Life can be saved ….Seeking Counsellor’s help is not a shame…

by Harmeet Kaur

Last week a dear friend lost her niece. The young girl committed suicide. The young girl from Hyderabad was undergoing counselling treatment for almost a year but the mother did not think that the problem was so serious. The father was not even informed that his own child was taking counselling sessions. Will this father ever recover from this shock?

My friend in a state of shock asked me why can we proudly say that someone survived from depression or anxiety  because the problem was diagnosed timely and treatment was given and the whole family was involved. For a cancer survivor, friends and relatives also come together to give emotional support during the whole process of treatment. If the same acceptance is  given to patients undergoing counselling treatment, change can be faster and long lasting.

May the humble soul rest in peace.Amen
