BSFThe Border Security Force, BSF has launched two ambitious projects to curb depression and suicides amongst its jawans. Introduction of a wellness quotient assessment test in their annual medical checkup is a part of the project. Wellness quotient assessment test is a multi-point questionnaire which is being linked to the annual medical test of jawans and officers.

The second pilot project launched in this context is called the ‘mentor-mentee’ system.
BSF Director General K K Sharma, said he has initiated the projects with a concern to reduce such instances in the force on a priority basis.

Under this pilot project, troops will have to reply to a variety of questions relating to a various life situations, challenges and conditions. These questions have been prepared by expert mental counsellors and doctors.

There are people who are natural counselors. Such troops (mentors) will also train others (mentee) in combating stress and taking correct decisions when faced with issues that create mental trouble.

Records state that while in 2014 there were 46 suicides in the BSF, these numbers reduced to 27 in 2015 and 24 in the last year.
