In India 10-20 people out of every 1000 suffering from severe mental illness, and 3-5 times more have emotional disorder. Lack of awareness, refusal to accept this reality and social stigma attached to mental illness stops people from leading productive lives and those needing help often end up without access to appropriate treatment. In Mumbai PTRC is striving to create awareness about mental health and to provide the necessary treatment to emotionally deprived and disturbed children, adults and their family.
Our work here also includes work with bereavement, child abuse, communication and autistic disorders, learning disabilities, conduct disorders, eating disorders, self harm and sustain abuse in children and adults.
The centre was started with the aim of making this help accessible to families of all incomes. With this we can provide help to larger number of people looking for assistance.
