ADULT Mental Health

Mental health problems are the leading cause of suffering and impoverishment in India. This large burden is compounded by a perverse stigma that is associated with mental health problems.
Sangath has been a pioneer in combating this situation by studying mental health problems, developing and evaluating new models of mental health care through lay counsellors, and working with non-governmental organisations and government partners to take such models of care to impact the lives of people affected by mental health problems in several parts of the country.
