A nationwide survey by India's National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) recently found that about 150 million Indians suffer from some kind of mental health disorder but only 30 million or lesser address it and seek help.

As reported by HT, according to NIMHANS Director, Pratima Murthy, over 10% of the population has diagnosable mental health disorder.

This survey focused on issues like mental morbidity, a condition that affects both physical and mental health due to a particular mental disorder. It is a huge matter of concern as the study also concluded that 1% of the sample size is at high risk of suicide.

Murthy also said, as quoted by HT, that mental health is paramount, and getting treatment for mental disorders is not a luxury but a necessity.
