Why make a Donation?

We don't live in a perfect world, and there's never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help. Whether interest rates are rising, the economy is in the doldrums, or even if you're experiencing financial difficulties of your own, the reality is that when you donate your money, you help others who need it.

PS: All donations are Partially Exempt from Income Tax under section 80C of the Indian I.T. act

But Why Should You Donate to VIMHANS?

Felt personally affected by a mental health issue? Distressed? Helpless? Fragile? Be there for somebody in their hour of need, just as somebody was (hopefully) there for you.

We seek the support of businesses to effectively pay the costs of our services. By donating to VIMHANS, you are supporting to run, provide, sustain and increase the reach of quality mental health care.

India has a massive treatment gap in any health care service, and mental health is the most neglected (80%). 1 in every 7 persons in India suffers from a mental illness and suicide is an emerging high risk concern amongst youth.

According to a recent study concluded by National Mental Health Survey of India (NHMS), we have 0.75 Psychiatrists for every 1,00,000 persons (in 2017, India’s population comprised of approx 197.3 million persons living with a mental illness). Less than 1 psychiatrist on an average, is lower than the global average of 0.1 for low middle income countries. Apart from psychiatrists, we have huge demand and supply margins with every category of Mental Health Professional (MHP) like Psychologists, Psychiatric Nurses, Social Workers and Counsellors.

Organisations like VIMHANS aim to augment the existing system, spread awareness of Mental Health far and wide. We continue to be a family run institution, our entire cause is dedicated towards taking Dr. Vidyasagar Dewan’s legacy and vision forward. You can read more about us here. With the advent of the internet, we would like our resources to cater to not only Delhi, but tier 2, tier 3 cities as well. We need to work together to unburden the existing system, and make mental health a priority - at par with physical health. VIMHANS also provides free services in mental healthcare to anybody with a BPL ration card/ referral from a govt. hospital - all treatment is free.

Services in mental healthcare are all about people, not surgeries, not procedures, and unfortunately not even guarantees. Help us create this small space in a big way, and for the larger good.

Support us in your personal capacity, or to fulfil your corporate social responsibility which as accepted, is now an integral part of any modern business.

What We Can Do With Your Contribution

A donation is a gift for charity, humanitarian aid, or to benefit a cause. A donation may take various forms, including money, alms, services, or goods such as clothing, toys, food, or vehicles. At VIMHANS, a donation may satisfy medical needs such as medication, treatment cost, or procedures in the case of a mental illness. It could also be directed towards the therapy journey of a child with special needs and his/ her family.
