Aamir Khan’s Move To Prevent Student Suicide
Considering into the series of student’s suicide cases in Maharastra, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Bombay Psychiatry Society (BPS) have opened a workshop called 'Life is Beautiftul' to locate syndromes of depression in child.
In this workshop ‘Life is beautiful’, all the teachers are invited from BMC schools and private schools to attend this child issue program
Since this serious issue needs to be lifted by a greater personality to give the right effect to their message BMC eventually chosen Aamir Khan to be their right brand ambassador, as he is a current kids and teenager’s sensation.
To add on to this view, Dr Sanjay Oak, dean, KEM hospital said, “Students like Aamir’s personality. He makes films with a strong social messages.” On the anvil is an extensive multimedia campaign featuring the star, “appealing the young to appreciate the beauty of life”.
Aamir is reported to be very much in touch with this social sentiment and genuinely wants to help children from depression and adds, “Yes, I have been approached by the BMC and will be a part of their campaign ‘Life is Beautiful’.” Psychiatrist Dr Harish Shetty said, “Statements like ‘I want to run away’ or ‘I have lost interest in work’ indicate suicidal tendencies.” Every Friday the workshop will educate teachers on identifying suicidal tendencies and immediate counselling for such children. Dr Oak, said, “BMC has decided to flash the helpline 25706000, on TV and newspapers for the benefit of distressed students.”
Moreover Aamir has a genuine reason to be an ambassador of BMC’s workshop ‘ Life is beautiful’ because often he had shared his moment with children and teens in most of his films.
