Mental Health — It is Everyone’s Responsibility

“…one needs to take a very close and nuanced view of the society in order to really understand what causes mental health issues and thus, the underlying neurosis in all of us.”

“The emphasis is on the “self” and not on the idea of a “community.” This phenomenon has permeated mental health notions too. The individual is burdened with dealing and overcoming mental health issues, instead of the society taking collective responsibility.”

“If one starts understanding the realities of transgenders, sex workers, gender non-conforming individuals, individuals with different sexualities, single/widowed women, disabled, migrant or informal worker, one has to encounter the stark and dark realities of the society that we live in.”
