Founder Message

A lot of people are suffering from mental health and substance use disorders in our society. In India, only 1 out of 10 people receives evidence based treatment. Most of them do not receive needed treatment. Out of several contributing factors, one of them is a lack of the awareness of the problems or fear of stigma associated with them. This results in poor quality of life in personal, social or occupational domains, also including deaths because of suicides. We at Mindroot Foundation are concerned with addressing this global issue.

During my MD in AIIMS, New Delhi in 2015, I was overwhelmed by these issues and decided to address these challenges. We are a group of like minded and passionate friends who have come together to address this social issue. Finally, one year after my MD, by the help of my friends and blessing of my seniors, we set up and started “The Mindroot Foundation”.

In upcoming years, The Mindroot Foundation will focus on:

Spreading awareness in the society to narrow the treatment gap for people living with mental and substance use disorders

Addressing the stigma associated with mental and substance use disorders

To provide cost effective and evidenced based treatment to people suffering from mental health problems

Please support us in this social endeavor. Together we can make a difference.
