India’s mental health crisis: A PPP between State and private mental health professionals can help

One of the biggest reasons for depression today is the pressure to live up to the expectations of society, peers and social media followers. Success and acceptance have become paramount, often at the cost of one’s mental well-being. Earlier people could unwind in a communal social setting such as the joint family, the local barber, the coffee house adda, or common interest groups.
With work pressure and long working hours, parents often find it difficult to engage adequately with children. The National Mental Health Survey 2015-16 published by the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Bengaluru, estimated that nearly one in seven teenagers growing up in India’s metros could be suffering from mental health disorders.(Fotolia)
