A day after the tragic death of 26-year-model Anam Tanoli, PTI presidential nominee Arif Alvi called for a 24/7 helpline for those suffering from depression.
“Millions of people especially women under different socio-economic pressures face depression and some commit suicide. Psychiatric help should be readily available including a 24/7 helpline,” tweeted Alvi.
And many agree:
Tanoli was found dead at her residence in an upscale neighbourhood of Lahore on Saturday with police saying that she committed suicide.
According to the police, Tanoli’s body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her house in the Defence area. The body was shifted to General Hospital for a post mortem.
According to reports, she was battling severe depression. It is not clear whether the depression was due to personal issues or her career.
