Sir Cowas­jee In­sti­tute pub­lishes Men­tal Health Mag

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - IS­LAM­ABAD—

Sir Cowas­jee Jehangir In­sti­tute of Psy­chi­a­try Hy­der­abad Sindh has brought into mar­ket a mag­a­zine”Men­tal Health” to in­form about is­sues re­lated to psy-cho­log­i­cal well be­ing of the pub­lic.

Talk­ing to APP, Dr Ab­dul Hameed Me­mon for­mer chief psy­chi­a­trist, Gov­ern­ment of Sindh Satur­day said Men­tal Health mag­a­zine has been pub­lished ev­ery year.

He said it is a very im­por- tant is­sue and the world ob- serves Men­tal Health Day ev­ery year with com­mit­ment to elim­i­nate street re­lated vi­o­lence and ab­nor­mal and dis­oderly be­hav­ior and bring per­son suf­fer­ing from men­tal dis­or­ders into the main­stream of the so­ci­ety as use­ful cit­i­zen of the coun­try.

He said the mag­a­zine tries to dis­sem­i­nate use­ful in­forma- tion in lo­cal lan­guage but as most doc­tors do not pro­vide their ar­ti­cles in Sindhi that’s why less arti- cles are pub­lished in it.

He said men­tal health is an im­por­tant is­sue as prob­lems re­lated to it are in­creas­ing in so­ci­ety and peo­ple need in-for­ma­tion. “The dis­eases of men­tal health are in­creas­ing in Paki-stan and we need to over­come them,” he added.— APP
