Speaker Meeting at kamat Lingapur, Chief Guest: Roshani.
Volunteers from Roshni have addresed our club at Hotel Kamat Lingapur on 14th Nov 2009. Roshni is a suicide helpline that offers free, unconditional support to the depressed and the suicidal. Roshni is an effort to counter the accelerating suicide rates in a country where over 90,000 people kill themselves every year. They are guided by the belief that "suicide is not a wish to die, but a cry for help.Roshni is affiliated to Befriender's International- operating in 40 countries over the world, and with the support of over 40,000 volunteers. 35 rigorously trained voluteers at Roshni, Hyderabad are there to lend an ear to any mental problems-whether due to the girl-next-door, physical abuse, health problems or even if you start to realize that you actually prefer the boy-next-door and not his sister. If you don't have an issue with anonymity, you can even drop in at their center for a personal session.
