On July 4, 2021, The Times of India reported that Ahmedabad has been witnessing a drastic increase in the number of individuals reporting incidents of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. As per the report, the primary cause was the economic downturn due to the pandemic-imposed lockdown. In another study conducted by the Gujarat Psychological Intervention Helplines (GPHI), the city reported a surge in cases of panic attacks by 44%, depression by 27%, and adjustment issues by 23%. Overall, mental illnesses saw a rise of about 25%.
However, since then, the government, along with the citizens of Ahmedabad, have made it their priority to increase awareness regarding mental health concerns. In September 2022, the government of Gujarat announced a new center for mental health and well-being to be set up in the city. As more people adapt to technology and its miracles, the government is also welcoming Telehealth platforms focused on mental health.
