Social Media Campaign Report
Book Launch: AMAL
This year, in the light of the World Suicide Prevention Day initiative, Seven Boats has adopted the theme of “Hum Jiyenge” for their Suicide Prevention Awareness Campaign primarily in Kolkata and its neighbouring areas. “Hum Jiyenge” which translates to “We will Live” is a reflection of the positive spirit that “Creating Hope Through Action” caters to. It aims to inspire a feeling of hope in the ones for whom life has become a source of pain and hopelessness. People suffering from depression and experiencing suicidal thoughts slowly lose out on the “will” to live. The words “Hum Jiyenge” aims to bolster and strengthen the weakened spirit and also inspire a want for life in the ones willing to give up on it.
With #HumJiyenge, Seven Boats has taken a step towards spreading true awareness about this extremely misunderstood and stigmatized social issue and creating a safe place for people suffering to voice their anguish and find solace and support.
AMAL is the book containing articles by experts, Case study, Survey results, Words of Inspiration & more.

Felicitation of Lifeline Foundation
It is a matter of great pride for us all that we are being able to address here today a subject that is otherwise considered as a taboo. It is most unfortunate when people suffering from severe depression choose to or think of taking their own lives finding no other way to let go of their anguish. Fear of being alienated and misunderstood further worsens the situation. It is extremely important for us all to realize how a little empathy can make a big difference. Thus, today we have decided to recognize the work of an organization that has taken up the huge responsibility of bringing hope where there is none.
A big round of applause for Lifeline Foundation for their support in this noble initiative. Lifeline Foundation is a voluntary organization working in the field of mental health and suicide prevention in Kolkata for over 26 yrs. – since 1996. The organization runs tele helplines to try and provide emotional support to callers who may be depressed, distressed or suicidal.
