KOSHISH in collaboration with UNDP, successfully completed two-month campaign for ‘Sub-National Government engagement for suicide prevention interventions in policies and programs in Province-1’ started in July 2021. The aim of the campaign was to sensitize the government and community stakeholders for suicide prevention and issues of psychosocial disability.
The campaign was successful in sensitizing 162 members of the Provincial Assembly, local government
representatives, Bureaucrats, NFDN, CSOs, and NGO Federation on issues relating to suicide and the need
to address the matter at the Sub-national level. The participants committed to developing relevant policies
and strategies for mental health and suicide prevention in Province-1 and development of programs. Four
podcasts and four wellness videos were also developed to raise awareness on suicide prevention.
