Reviewing the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017....

Amba Salelkar
The Mental Healthcare Act was recently notified in the Official Gazette after being passed by both th houses of Parliament. The Act seeks to change the way we treat mental health and ensure that our law is in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). The Act is quite comprehensive and establishes new procedures and authorities for its implementation. These may take time to set up and receive the budgets that are warranted to ensure their effectiveness – which is why the impact of the law may not be immediate. Even so, we can look at the letter of the law and understand what we can look forward to and what we should be aware of.
What's good
The Act, under Chapter V ensures that all persons shall have the right to access mental healthcare and treatment from mental health services run or funded by the Government. This means that you can walk into any Government-run mental health service in your locality (or in a neighboring one, if no…

Let Us Talk: Developing Connections And Empowering Communities For Well-BeingbySuneel Vatsyayan
Posted on Mar 23 '17, 
Community roots, community reach Chanda (name changed), along with eight other peer educators with a similar background, regularly visits families in an urban slum of New Delhi to talk with them about diabetes, hypertension, cancer and alcohol and tobacco. These peer educators are 15- to 18-year old students and are living in the same community where they conduct their interventions. That makes it easier for them to understand and to make a connection with the families they meet. Five out of nine peer educators share how their fathers were addicted to alcohol and despite being girls how they managed to make their fathers understand and help them overcome addiction. Building on their own stories and being able to rely on their intimate understanding of the community, the peer educators, like Chanda, are able to relate once they get a chance to speak with families tha…

Vineet and Mani join Nada India as volunteers

Two students of a Rohtas-based school are on cloud nine after the President of India's office responded positively to their plan to clean the man-made lake around Sher Shah Suri's mausoleum.
Class XI students Vineet Prakash and Mani Raj Singh had written to President Pranab Mukherjee on December 15, seeking his intervention to restore the glory of the mausoleum, on the wane because of a foul smell emanating from the water body around it in Sasaram district.

The letter, a copy of which is with The Telegraph, said the dirty water had not been cleaned for decades because of the apathetic attitude of authorities and Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), which looks after the heritage site.

In the letter the boys said it was not only sending a wrong message to tourists but could also cause serious diseases because of air pollution.

The students had earlier chalked out a detailed plan to clean the water, something they showcased at a science exhibition in Ranchi in February. Their plan …

We will fill the time with epic content and inspiring stuff because let's be real, we have no time to waste on our mission to shatter a harmful alcohol norm and to celebrate the alcohol-free lifestyle. Cheers Up Gear up! Fact number 1. There is stigma around alcohol problems. Fact number 2. The stigma is very dangerous. Fact number 3. The stigma is maintained by many nice people without any bad intentions but lacking knowledge about alcohol problems. Fact number 4. The stigma is fuelled by an industry that would crash on the stock market if fact number 1 would be false. Let us take it step by step
