 Government Working to Make People Aware of Stress-Related Problems

In a bid to improve productivity and tackle stress among people, Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda said that the government is working on "Catch them Young" programme to make people aware of stress-related problems.

"There is a heightened focus on preventive health along with curative health now.

"People suffer from stress related problems due to their busy work life and hectic schedule, which in turn results in loss of productivity.

"NCDs are acquired lifestyle ailments, which place a very high burden through the healthcare cost," he said, adding his Ministry is working on the theme of "Catch them Young" to effect behaviour change among the young to keep away from such habits that cause NCDs.

He also said that through pictorial books, health messages will be brought out that to educate the children and youth about healthy living habits and activities.

Highlighting the importance of such initiatives, Nadda said: "These initiatives will strengthen our health communications initiatives and will bring us closer to people who need our services the most." He also said that soon all health mobile apps launched by the Health Ministry will be available at one click on the National Health Portal (NHP).

Aimed to help users to manage stress, the main objective of 'No More Tension' is to provide information to users regarding stress such as to what is stress, effects, symptoms and its management. The app allows the user to measure their stress level and learn various techniques like yoga and meditation to reduce stress from their lives.

It will cover different aspects of health: women and child health, elderly health, seasonal ailments, daily nutritional needs, safe medication practices, home remedies healthy living and many more.
