Mind Organization is a non-government, non-profit charity organization working to achieve high standards of mental health care for the psychiatric patients especially in peripheral areas of Pakistan. Mind Organization is also working to promote awareness about mental health issues to reduce stigma attached to it.
According to the estimates by World Health Organization, there are over 14 millions people in Pakistan suffering from mild to severe mental disorders. Since most of our population dwells in rural areas, where psychiatric facilities are almost non-existent, this major segment is deprived of any form of modern psychiatric care. The only hope then, for the unfortunate mentally ill people concentrated in rural areas is to turn towards quacks or pseudo-religious experts who try to treat the patient by employing harsh and painful methods like blood letting, chaining and body scalding etc.Donate Now
