World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is observed every year on 10 September, to increase awareness that suicide isn’t the last option and can be prevented. Considering this year’s theme, ‘Working together to prevent suicide’, Dr Kedar Tilwe, psychiatrist and sexologist, Hiranandani Hospital explained the impact of ill-treatment in childhood and its impact on mental health in the growing years. Both prolonged and brief exposure to adverse experiences in childhood can have a huge impact and leave life-long emotional scars on a person’s psychological health and emotional well-being. Blaming oneself for the event or its repercussions can result in a negative self-image, low confidence and self-esteem, and a complete lack of self-worth. There are some adverse consequences of ill-treatment in childhood: • The shame, guilt and trauma of betrayal associated with the abuse, can lead to social isolation, inability to trust people. • There is an increased vulnerability for precipitation of psychiatric illnesses such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and even personality disorders. • Often, those who have suffered ill-treatment in childhood have a higher probability of perpetrating the same behaviour towards their family or loved ones, in later life. Though not all people who suffer abuse as children have difficult adulthood, many continue to suffer silently. However, it must be noted that they are not responsible for what happened and do not have to endure the same. -AMULYA NINDRAKOLANU
