We all have mental health, like we all have physical health. Both change throughout our lives. And, like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. Mental health problems might actually be more common than you think. One in four of us will be affected by mental illness in any year. The effects are as real as a broken arm, even though there isn’t a sling or plaster cast to show for it. Let's talk about mental health and make a pledge to end mental health stigma at www.time-to-change.org.uk
The biggest challenge in the field of mental health is the prevalence of widespread ignorance and misconceptions. This results in dismal rate of treatment among those who suffer from mental health problems. With a mission to provide access to right knowledge on mental health to the people and getting them to play a more constructive role in improving the situation for those who suffer and their caregivers, White Swan Foundation for Mental Health was formed as a non-profit organization. The foundation aims to provide patients, caregivers and others with well-researched content that will help them make informed decisions on how to deal with mental health issues. The White Swan Foundation team will collaborate with like-minded individuals and organizations across the world to bring to you the best-in-class knowledge on mental health.NIMHANS has partnered with White Swan Foundation to offer knowledge, resources and expertise in enabling the latter to develop such knowledge repositories on mental health.
