While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason. Depression is more than just a low mood – it’s a serious condition that affects your physical and mental health. It is estimated that globally more than 300 million people of all ages suffer from depression. Lack of support and fear of stigmatization has increased the prevalence of depression by 18% between 2005 and 2015. Hence in order to sensitize local and international community on Depression, World Health Day was celebrated on 7th April, 2017 globally with the common theme: Depression-Let’s Talk!
On the occasion of World Health Day, Department of Public Health with joint effort of students conducted awareness program in college premises. On the day, the public health students conducted orientation program to the students under BBA and BCA department studying in same college, on disease burden, signs/symptoms and awareness on Depression. IEC materials such as posters with images of depression, facts and figures, signs/symptoms were also developed by the students and was exhibited in the college premises. Though depression is a common public health problem, due to stigma and lack of adequate health care services people hesitate to disclose their problem or seek professional support. Hence this program was effective to aware young people on depression as health issue that need to be resolved with the help of health professionals, like any other health problems, for quality life.
