KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The first monthly magazine covering psychological issues ‘Psychology for Afghanistaninfo-icon’ joined the print media on Thursday.

The first printed magazine was launched at a ceremony in the Afghan-German International Hospital in capital Kabul.

Sharafuddin Azimi, a university lecturer and editor-in-chief of the magazine, said the monthly covered psychological issues and created awareness about psychology in Afghanistan.

Not caring about people’s sentiments was a big problem in Afghanistan, he said.

An article on the first page of the magazine says depression, stress, anxiety and other mental disorders are specifications found in war affected societies.

The article adds the decades of war in Afghanistan, mass migrationinfo-icon, imbalanced life, use of narcotics, substandard curriculum, destructive cultural propagandas and lack of academic resources are causes that increased psychological disorders.

Abdul Manan Haqyar, a psychology teacher, said the Afghan government and psychologists had neglected creating awareness about mental disorders.

The magazine officials said the monthly in four coloured pages would be printed both in Dari and Pashtoinfo-icon languages.

They said 1,000 copies of the publication have been printed in the first issue which will be delivered free of cost to hospitals, students studying psychology and people interested in the magazine.
