According to National Health Programme document, about 30 Million Indians are in need of some sort of mental health care. With timely intervention and proper care, we can recover at least 60 percent of these disturbed people. Psychological issues of large number of people can be cured by merely listening empathetically and actively with proactive mind set and thus establish a caring human relationship.
