Peoples Charitable Trust tackling mental health issues head-on

17 Feb 2021 4:17 PM | Anonymous

THE pandemic is already leaving deep mental scars. Isolation, loneliness, grief, domestic violence, general anxiety, professional burnout, and post-traumatic stress have all become part of the ongoing health crisis. Covid-19 has hit a double blow – both to the body and mind. While physicians and health experts carefully document its effect on the human body, the psycho-social effects on mental health are yet to gather mass attention.

A 2017 report of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) noted that in India about one in seven persons suffers from mental disorders of varying severity. Depression and anxiety disorders were the most common, affecting 45.7 million and 44.9 million people, respectively.
