Gilgal mental care centre
Mental illness in recent times is an increasing phenomena. There are lots of unhealthy and undesirable treatment Practices still prevailing in our country.

Some time their family members abandon them causing them to be a public nuisance.One of the most heart-rending sights on our streets: the mentally-ill roadside destitute, living off the streets but the society doesn't come forward to help them. Various superstitious beliefs are attached to mental illness Patients have no where to go to and thus need a helping hand (therapeutic treatment) that will restore them back in their normal life. Unfortunately, though charitable organizations exist which deal with the plight of destitutes in general, they are invariably reluctant to accept mentally ill destitutes, possibly because of an inherent fear of mental illness, and perhaps the fear that taking in a mentally ill patient may result in injury to the other inmates and staff and possibly because of an absence of readily available services of trained professionals from the psychiatric fields. We in Gilgal Aswasa Bhavan Provides institutional care for those mentally deranged by giving proper care and medication.
