Our Supporters

In association with The Alternative India, this Mental Health Awareness Week, we come out with voices that show just how common the condition is, how desperately lonely one feels, how support is always far away and why we need to talk about it now. Check out our entire series on Mental Health.

If you have a story around mental health to share, please write to us at editor@thealternative.in, and we will publish it in the strictest confidence.
