About 38 Percent People Have Symptoms of Mental Health Problems

Nearly 38 percent people show signs of mental health difficulties and require immediate professional medical assistance to know the actual well-being of their mental health, reveals a new study.

The survey was conducted by Cosmos Institute of Mental health And Behavioral Sciences (CIMBS) and LiveHindustan.com on UC Browser.


The aim of the survey was to create awareness among the readers about mental health issues and the existing risks.

The survey was done during the last week of November and had over 50,000 people who participated in the study. The participants were to respond to a set of 10 questions, designed by CIMBS. The questions were asked to test the mental health risks of the participants.

The survey was conducted on UC Browser, which is a leading content distribution platform in India and has used the opportunity to attain maximum participation.

The UC Browser uses latest big data technology and personalizes every user's homepage, according to their area of interest.

The participation was made easy as it was shared on a mobile phone and a personal device could be accessed only by the user.

"With the rising prevalence of mental illnesses, the society's focus needs to shift on not just treating these disorders but also to effectively detect them at an early stage and also towards promoting mental health. The survey has been prepared to allow people to self-rate and help become aware of early signs of any mental health issue," said Dr. Sameer Kalani, Consultant Psychiatrist at CIMBS, New Delhi.

The results showed that only 8 percent people reported no symptoms of mental health difficulties.

The findings of this survey highlighted that 52 percent people showed psychological difficulties. These could be warning signs of mental disorders.

Making moderate changes in health and lifestyle can help reduce the symptoms and improve their quality of life, one may need to consult a mental health professional for assessment and support at the earliest.

RS Sharma, Business Head, LiveHindustan.com said, "We are delighted to participate with UC Browser for such reader-oriented campaigns. We will be happy to be part of such campaigns in future as well."
