We strongly condemn the irresponsible reporting of suicide by media.
" The shameful reporting of the mother daughter suicide in a major Goan English newspaper (30th July) crossed all bounds of professionalism, and more importantly, human decency. As a professional working in the field of mental health and as a human being who feels for the survivors of this sad event we condemn such crass commercialisation of human tragedy."

Statement of PSG on the proposed Disability Bill
2nd Feb 2016:
Attention is drawn to the recent reports in media ( see link 1 below) about the proposed Disability Bill.
We strongly believe that no discrimination should happen to people who fight mental illness with regard to suitability to work. Mental illnesses like other chronic illnesses can be long lasting and cause disability. People fighting mental illnesses should not be denied benefits which are available to people with disabilities in other areas.
We also welcome the clarifications made by Hon. Union Minister for Women and Child Development ( see link 2 below) on this issue.
The Psychiatric Society of Goa firmly believes that people with mental illness when adequately treated are capable of holding and working on responsible jobs; they can be sincere, honest and productive employees.
We strongly recommend meaningful occupational engagement as an essential part of the treatment and societal re-integration for people with mental illness.
