We are a suicide prevention programme for young people
Suicide is currently the leading cause of death in young people aged 15-29 in India.The causes for suicides point at a complex combination for environmental factors like physical violence, emotional and sexual abuse, or exam stress.
Even though there isn’t one single cause for suicide, there are many ways to prevent it based on young people’s needs.
Outlive is an initiative of Sangath, The Centre for Mental Health Law & Policy, and Quicksand, co-designed and implemented with young people.
