The Indian woman is changing, and along with her is India. The backbone of this evolution is one’s emotional health and the keepers of this are often our mental health professionals. Mental health in India has often been a topic spoken about behind closed doors and met with a lot of stigma.
However, there are some women are challenging the stigmatized perception now and pushing for a change. They dare to defy and tirelessly advocate for mental health. These women bring to light the importance of mental health care in non-judgemental and creative ways. It’s time we take notice of their work and celebrate their undying commitment to a mentally fitter India.
Each Monday we are going to share a conversation we had with one woman who is making a difference in mental health care in India.
