Mental health is a major problem nowadays in young adults as well as in the students but still, up to now, there is a stigma about it visiting mental health professionals seeking help still considered taboo.

The results from the NMHS point to the huge burden of mental health problems: while nearly 150 million Indians need mental health care services, less than 30 million are seeking care for some of the most common and frequently reported mental illnesses include depression and bipolar disorders, anxiety, schizophrenia, dementia, and eating disorders.

Depression is the number one cause of disability worldwide and is one of the most significant contributors to the global burden of disease, greatly impacting individuals and their families mentally, physically, socially, and financially. Mental illness affects everyone no matter their race, gender, culture, age, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
