For a long time, psychologists and social scientists have been concerned about a decline in mental health among the typical Indian. However, in an era of rapid technological innovation and fierce employment rivalry, it has been one of the least discussed topics.

The Covid epidemic has exacerbated the situation, with unemployment and disease at an all-time high. In the Rajya Sabha, the Centre said that 10.6% of individuals in India suffer from some form of mental illness.

Because of the seriousness of the condition, Niti Aayog has long advocated for the government to incorporate mental health treatment in basic healthcare plans.

According to the Niti Aayog’s ‘Heath Care in India Vision 2020,’ “three major illnesses, namely cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and renal problems, as well as negligence in relation to mental health conditions, have recently displayed troubling tendencies.”

Governments must include mental health into their policy frameworks after Covid-19 by enhancing their approach to mental health services and increasing public perceptions of the problem. Niti Aayog is a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives.
