Karachi: 16 May 2022 Depression and other mental ailments do NOT have a set representation. Someone with suicidal tendencies could be the most vibrant, happy-looking and excited person you'd ever meet. All other physical illnesses & injuries come with at least some recognizable symptoms, but mental health issues are unfortunately the most hidden & silent enemies that attack us. And that's why whenever someone decides to end their life, judgments & snide remarks follow. "You have no reason to be depressed" "He did not look like someone with mental illness".. these are ignorant statements. It's as important to check up on your "happy" friends as it's to look out for someone who seems sad. A lot of people don't even know they suffer from some mental illness. Being su¡cidal doesn't depend solely on depression, there are several other factors involved. So, let's keep an eye on any and every anomaly of behaviour in your loved ones. And if you are someone who is thinking of ending things, PLEASE remember there is professional help available and you have so many people you will leave behind broken and incomplete for the rest of their lives.
