Sustaining Mental Well Being

Started: May 2021

Mental health is one of the most critical areas that defines our sense of overall well-being. Unlike other physical illnesses, this is often more “invisible” and is often a taboo to acknowledge and discuss..In India, there are 3,16,95,958 cases reported. Many more are unreported . Women suffer more from this then men. There is a need to build awareness around this and provide a supportive eco-system to handle this.
