IAP Mission Kishore Uday (MKU) is a Comprehensive Adolescent HealthProgram under Presidential Action Plan 2018-19 in collaboration with Adolescent Health Academy. The program is a call for action for ‘Adolescent Suicide Prevention and Intervention’.
The theme of MKU 2018-19 is ‘Precious Teens Precious Lives’.India is home to the largest number of adolescents in the world. Adolescents form 21.8% of our population (Census 2011) and they are our demographic dividend. Their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing is crucial to the health of the nation. According to the National Crime Bureau Records 2015, every hour one student commits suicide in our country. Self-harm is the top cause of mortality amongst adolescents in India.
IAP, being the leading professional organisation in India for adolescent health care has taken the onus and responsibility to reduce rate of adolescent suicide through Mission Kishore Uday Program. MKU program aims at capacity building, education and training of paediatricians, teachers, parents and adolescents to prevent teen suicide. The paediatricians component of the program deals with management of common mental health and physical health issues with focus on teen suicide prevention and intervention. The parents, teachers and adolescents components include building resilience, nurturing life skills and tips on preventing suicide with sensitivity and empathy.
