Indore is the largest city in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It boasts a rich history and has witnessed rapid industrialization over the past few years. Known for its handloom industry, magnificent palaces and temples, street food, and nightlife, it is no wonder that the city is becoming home to countless people. The architectural elegance and the industrial progress have also attracted youth to relocate to the cleanest city of India in search of employment and growth opportunities. However, with a surge in the population, the city also reported a rise in the cases of mental health.
On October 10th, 2022, the Times of India reported a spike of 254% in the cases of mental health over the last six months in Indore. Additionally, in 2021, from April to September, the city reported thousands of cases of anxiety, depression, insomnia, restlessness, and trauma caused by the coronavirus outbreak. It was also noted that only the records from public health facilities show so much rise. The actual situation must have been worse because the taboo and stigma associated with mental health issues prevent people from reporting them.
But now, it is easier than ever to consult a psychiatrist. The COVID-imposed lockdown taught us how efficiently most activities could be carried out virtually. And so is the case with mental illnesses. DocVita provides a user-friendly platform where you can browse a list of psychiatrists and choose the one that best fits your needs. We effectively aim to bridge the gap between those seeking help and those offering assistance. All you need is a stable internet connection and a smart device.
