Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth. The reason for suicidal tendency among youth is high competition, youths' unaddressed emotional problems, unemployment, pressure from society etc, they resort to bad habits like smoking, drinking, drug consuming etc.

Acharya Balkrishna, Ayurvedic Physician and co-founder of Patanjali Yogpeeth said, "In Ayurveda, stress is called as 'Vishada'. This is also described as "one of the most disease aggravating factors" leading to other numerous disorders. Herbs known as adaptogens are beneficial in alleviating stress. Ayurvedic preparations like intake of Brahmi (Bacopamonnieri) as helps to relax the mind and bring it to a comfortable state. Its oil has a cooling and soothing effect on the mind.
