Whilst the world has been quick to respond to the growing threats to the human body , little has been done especially in India, in response to the
afflictions of the human mind.
The mentally ill. The emotionally disturbed and those with severe personality disorders bear not only the anguish of their suffering but also the
additional burden of society’s indifference and ignorance . In spite of falling victim to false beliefs and deeply rooted misconceptions, the issue
of mental health features very low on our government;s agenda and almost not at all on society;s list of priorities.
The isolation of the mentally ill, the emotionally disturbed, and of the issue at large has only further perpetuated the callous indifference that
exists within society. Integration rehabilitation into community treatment is a necessity that cannot b further ignored.
In recognition of the current dearth of services and the growing need for a multifaceted approach, the MANAV foundation committed itself to the
MANAV rehabilitation center for the mentally ill and emotionally disturbed
