In India, children with mental health disorders are mostly undiagnosed and hesitant to seek help or treatment. According to the Indian Journal of Psychiatry in 2019, even before the pandemic, at least 50 million children in India were affected by mental health issues; 80 – 90 per cent have not sought support. It is imperative that more and more start-ups build unique solutions to address this challenge.
