Suicide awareness: Psychiatric society releases documentary on Blue Whale

The world is moving towards a rather competitive phase. Practically everyone we meet today is said to suffer from depression. Several things have been discussed in September over the Blue Whale fiasco.

An increase in the non-acceptance of rejection and a rise in the need for instant gratification were identified as key factors which would prompt a person to play this game.

Keeping this in mind, The Global Society for Digital Psychology, with the help of psychiatrists have made a documentary for school and college students to inform them about the menace of Blue Whale and the psychiatry of someone playing this game.

“The idea is to inform people that ‘suicide is not the answer’. This will be circulated among school and college students, so that they are made aware of the same,” said Dr Avinash DeSousa, President of The Global society for Digital Psychology.
