Having a stomach infection or asthma is acceptable to our society but depression, anxiety or cognitive disorders are a discussion that most families blow away!

When Richa started working closely on this cause she discovered that people do not address the issues of mental health due to a lack of awareness of its symptoms and fearing social implications it would bring.
