    Published on May 20, 2024

    New Delhi: Manasthali, a renowned mental health organization dedicated to offering innovative and compassionate treatment, has revitalised the life of a 28-year-old schizophrenia patient by providing him with the right support and treatment for his mental health condition. Schizophrenia is a complicated mental health disorder that affects millions of people worldwide and in India as well. A study in 2022 suggests that 7 per cent of Indians suffering from mental health conditions have schizophrenia in various degrees of severity.

    Umesh Sandhu (Name Changed) was diagnosed with schizophrenia after his parents complained of living in his imaginary world and talking strangely, thinking that they were very powerful, rich, or renowned. All these symptoms substantially hampered his capacity to operate independently and establish relationships, hampering the quality of his life.

    Manasthali took a holistic approach to mental health care, emphasising personalised treatment regimens based on his specific requirements and circumstances. He was given therapy sessions to improve his coping abilities, handle stress, and question skewed views and beliefs. Umesh also underwent medication management to help him cope with his psychotic episodes and maintain his mood.

    “Under the guidance and support of Manasthali’s dedicated and skilled health practitioners, Umesh made remarkable progress in his journey towards recovery. His hallucinations and delusions gradually decreased over time, allowing him to reclaim control of his life. With increased confidence and resilience, Umesh reconnected with his hobbies and interests, restored meaningful relationships with family and friends, and pursued his personal and professional goals with renewed zeal,” said *Dr Jyoti Kapoor, Founder & Director, Manasthali*

    Now, Umesh serves as an inspiration to others affected by schizophrenia. His story exemplifies the transformative power of compassionate care, perseverance, and hope in overcoming the challenges of mental illness. Manasthali remains steadfast in its mission to revolutionize mental health care and empower individuals affected by schizophrenia and other mental illnesses to reclaim their lives and realize their full potential.
