Pain Is Real, but So Is Hope

People with mental health disorders in India face overwhelming social stigma, a scarcity of care, and a lack of understanding. Many times, people struggling with psychosocial disabilities are kept hidden at home or are taken to “traditional” healers or those who practice witchcraft. There is little understanding about mental illness and the medications and care that can allow sufferers to live a normal life.

EHA provides care for people with mental health disorders at all of their hospitals, seeking those who need help and walking alongside them as they receive treatment. There are also six EHA mental health community projects operating across North India, bringing hope and healing to those in need.
