Mental Health Action Trust - MHAT

The Mental Health Action Trust (MHAT) is a Not-for-Profit organisation that aims to contribute to improved mental health care in India by integrating Psychiatry with Medicine. MHAT aims to deliver sustainable and integrated psychosocial care through medical networks involving volunteers in the community.

I came to know about them through a friend, Praveen, who is a mind reading specialist ( He is doing a Mind Reading show for them to raise funds for the mentally challenged people back in India. He wanted me to design a flyer for them (see below).

  1. My wife Radhika Sreekumar (46 years) is suffering with major depression (Recurrent Depression). During last 2 years the depression effected for 3 occassion and lasted for 4 to 5 months. At present she is suffering major depression since June 1st week.

    She is consuming Pexep CR-25 mg and Spenzo 1 mg as per Dr. SAabyasachi Mitra (Neuro-Phychiatrist) at Calcutta. But no improvement.

    Please advise. On hearing from you we will do the needful.

  2. Hi, I just mailed Mr. Manoj and here is his reply.

    Many thanks, Ravoof.

    My suggestion is that it will be inappropriate to give an opinion on a personal matter of a clinical nature which would normally require a face to face consultation. They will need to consult a Psychiatrist locally.

    Warm regards


    So please kindly consult another Psychiatrist. You can mail my friend Dr. Balan Vijay Kumar, a Psychiatrist, and tell him your problems. He may be able to guide you. Give my reference.

    Hope you find a solution. I pray for her speedy recovery.
