Islamabad : An enthusiastic group of volunteers of Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) held a demonstration on the root causes of depression and anxiety amongst the youth in front of the National Press Club, says a press release.

“We have planned this activity as part of an awareness campaign that we are doing to bring to fore the reasons behind the increasing depression and anxiety the youth of Pakistan is undergoing, said Shanzay Waqar, the group leader. The group of youngsters were holding placards with interesting and eye-catching slogans like “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in everyday”, Worrying is just a waste of time, and “Keep calm and carry on”. “Depression and anxiety are normally treated as a social stigma to be talked about in our society, but we have broken this taboo and have brought the sensitive issue to the everyday discourse” said the group media head Jasir Khawar.
