Research & Development
Today, much of India’s development agenda is mirrored in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an endorsement that has effectively propelled India to the legion of nations that accepts that all round human development is a global requirement based on co-operation and the understanding that the earth is a finite planet with finite resources. Mankind as a whole is at a tipping point and all significant players who form the backbone of the global economy is today facing the challenges of a sustainable future. Going by present day trends people in general are finding difficulties in dealing with even the most rudimentary tasks of daily living. This has been a bane, more pronounced in nations where the experience of growth telescoped from the basic agrarian to intricate cutting edge technology. The resultant has been a pervasive growth of a sub-culture of depressive mediocrity which is gradually eclipsing expressive spontaneity in many a human endeavour.
All said and done the entire burden in reality lies with the quality of human resources starting from the highest echelons of power to the lowest levels of implementable technology. Thus the need of the hour is to explore ways and means to address what more can be done to enhance quality of manpower which will allow for the most optimum utilization of all available resources in the most effective manner to allow for sustainability of the world community as a whole.
In view of the present scenario, it is only logical that all stakeholders comprising of professionals, governmental as well as non-governmental organisations, educational institutions, national and international agencies and community based organizations pool their knowledge and expertise to facilitate the evolution of a structured framework which focuses on the convergence of every aspect of positive living be it physical, social and or mental within the lifespan of each individual starting from infancy to old age. This would surely allow for the rise of a new paradigm in bringing about equilibrium in the quest for sustainable wellbeing.
MIND India has concentrated efforts towards developing a multi disciplinary intervention model on mental health issues, combining both non-medical as well as medical practices on a sound scientific platform. Emphasising on the bio-psycho-social aspects of human experience at the individual as well as collective levels, the goal is to usher in the benefits of positive mental health for the general population. The pathway undertaken by MIND India to attain its objectives is modeled on the concept of assessing needs at the ground level, deconstructing the same to arrive at the deeper issues surrounding that particular concern and thereafter putting together a methodology to address the same in the most appropriate manner. Thus any activity in MIND India follows a loosely structured model comprising of data collection, dissemination of information, appropriate training, intervention and rehabilitation as and when necessary.
The following are the activities undertaken and are chronologically placed for an understanding of the grand pattern aspired for.
