Call Me Today Myanmar’s first suicide hotline

Last June the suicide of a librarian who was bullied for being gay raised the thorny issue of sexual harassment in Myanmar workplaces. Despite several dismissals and a high-profile resignation, the University rather insensitively called the young man “mentally weak”.

Though workplace harassment needs to be addressed, an organisation called Call Me Today believes that some suicide cases, like Kyaw Zin Win’s, could have been prevented if a sympathetic person had been there to listen.
