It is estimated that…
 About 2-5% of India's population suffers some form of mental or
  behavioural disorder. Around 1% has a serious form of mental disorder
  requiring urgent care at any one point of time.

 No less than 10-15% of those attending general health facilities have a
  common mental disorder.


 Mental health disorders account for nearly a sixth of all health-related
  disorders. Yet we have just 0.4 psychiatrists and 0.02 psychologists per
  100,000 people, and 0.25 mental health beds per 10,000 population.
