The economic loss due to mental health conditions, between 2012-2030, is estimated at USD 1.03 trillion. 7.5% of the Indian population suffers from Mental Health Disorders. Mental Instability and Illness constitutes one sixth of all health disorders, which comes up to more than 13 crore patients in India. This number was nearly 15% of the Global Mental Health and Substance Abuse patients. A large segment of the population is struggling with mental or behavioural health issues associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including anxiety, depression, increased substance use, and suicidal thoughts. Panacea Healmed’s Mental Health Care platform provides support around various mental health issues, personalized care pathways and valuable preventive insights for Health Care Institutions, Corporate and Social Organisations.
