  1. This is a beautiful post. I am at loss of words to say about the word asylum. I don’t know, but I feel, each of us at some point of time would have felt the mental imbalance in our life. Lucky are those who say no to this. The, the asylum have to be rejuvenated. .

    1. Couldn’t agree more. Mental hospitals need to be re designed to make them more friendly and inclusive.

  2. These special persons are not given their due, instead of sympathy towards them,they are kept away from society.even society is not prepared .on every gathering they are kept behind doors. I Know a family with such a child and people avoid inviting them as the parents want to attend with the child.sorry state of affairs.

    1. We should indeed. I have actually been waiting to talk to you about the support group. Let me know a good time

  3. Even though people are well educated there still remains a taboo when their own people have mental illness. It is not yet talked about so openly. I am glad you have taken this up as a challenge and are striving to create awareness

    1. It’s sad and true. Even high profile families tend to distance themselves from struggling family members. It is a small step on a long road.

  4. Superb capsule of capturing the broad contours and issues relating to mental health at both a macro and micro level with such economy of expression

    1. That is indeed what the objective of this circadian exercise is. It is for the more preponderant accommodation of humanity and betterment of society at large
      .

  5. This was such a thought provoking post Arjun. Yes, we need to be a little more sensitive towards mental health. Depression is still a taboo in our country.

    1. Depression is a taboo and going to mental hospitals or getting treatment is an even bigger one. There is a lot of work we need to do. It will be done only one small step at a time.

  6. Its a pain and shame both that we the so called educated people are so ignorant about the mental health, its treatment and the way patients suffering from it are treated socially. Your posts are a real eye openers Arjun.

    1. My posts only aim at spreading this info Anagha. The real heroes are the journalists who had the courage to go undercover in hospitals to expose these conditions.
