Att bryta tabun kring mental hälsa (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The latest statistics from the National institute of mental health says that almost 14% of India’s population suffer from mental illness. Of these roughly 10% are suffering from depression, anxiety or substance use. The study says that due to the stigma associated with mental disorders, nearly 80% had not received any treatment despite being ill for over 12 months.

This is my starting point, and the project is about mental health and creating a suitable, caring environment where people dare to open up on this rather taboo topic, and also in the case of more severe illness, that people can get admitted and receive the help they need in order to get better.
