India faces two main issues when it comes to treating mental health issues:
- Societal stigma: This mainly includes the ‘log kya kahenge’ syndrome. In Indian society, going to a psychologist is the same as being ‘crazy’. This is most definitely not true and is one of the reasons that 1 in 7 Indians has a mental disorder but does not undergo treatment.
- Financial difficulties: Most Indians are not able to afford the therapy they need because their budget will not allow it. This makes their mental conditions worsen and can end up affecting their lives quite severely.
To address these issues, PsychOWLogist has made it its mission to:
- BREAK THE STIGMA
- Give people the affordable treatment they need
- Make India a happier place
