We take immense pleasure in informing you that September 8h is our Annual day; the significance of which is that this day is declared as World Suicide Prevention Day. ZEAL has celebrated its annual day to commemorate this cause since 2006.
Suicide in India is slightly above world rate. Every 4th minute a person commits suicide in India. Of the half million people reported to die of suicide worldwide every year, 20% are Indians. As many as 1,35,445 people committed suicide in the country last year. Tamil Nadu tops the list with 16,927 suicides. From among the cities, the highest number of self immolation cases was reported Chennai (282)
This is an alarming issue that needs to be addressed and ZEAL has dedicated itself to this cause every year.
The event "Joy of Living" is delivered by Rajan - Founder of ZEAL, SpeakEasy, IATD - Author "I Love Living"
