Mental Health in Islamabad

Pakistan’s current suicide rate is 6.14 per 100,000 people, with almost twice as many men killing themselves than women. In 2015, there were 19 reported suicide cases recorded in Islamabad alone, and only one was female.

Depression is a mental health condition that can lead to suicidal thoughts and actions when an individual becomes suicidal. According to Pakistan’s National Mental Health Survey (NMHS) conducted in 2016/17, less than 5% of 12 to 17-year olds in Islamabad suffer from depression symptoms; however, that same study found high levels of depression symptoms among adults living in outlying regions such as rural areas.

Moreover, the NMHS also found mental health cases were most prevalent among young adults between 15 to 29 years of age, which accounted for the highest amount of mental health issues. Nearly 10% of all lifetime suicides are committed by those who are diagnosed with depression before they reach 24 years old.

The outlook for Pakistan is grim as it’s predicted that more than 4 million people will lose their lives to suicide every year beginning in 2020 if current trends continue. It is estimated that 150 million mental health cases worldwide are diagnosed with depression, though the majority have never been treated. Suicide has historically been stigmatized in South Asian culture specifically because it is considered a ‘cowardly’ act whereas women who commit suicide are often considered ‘damaged goods.’


So, when it comes to mental health issues in Pakistan, individuals must deal with strong cultural stigmas concerning suicide and depression in addition to the already-existing stigmas related to mental health issues in general. Although Pakistan has seen progress when it comes to tackling psychological conditions (public funding for mental health increased by 2% in 2016), there is much room for improvement. There is still a significant number of people in Islamabad who remain undiagnosed because stigma surrounding these conditions inhibits them from seeking treatment; however, having knowledge about the issue may encourage others living with undiagnosed conditions or suicidal thoughts or actions to seek treatment if they feel comfortable doing so.
