For Mumbai's millions the pressures of basic survival take precedence over meeting emotional and mental health needs. Moreover, lack of awareness and the social stigma attached to mental illness stops people from seeking access to appropriate treatment.

Conservative estimates reveal that over 20 million Indians are struggling to cope with mental illness. However, there is a huge gap between what is needed and what is available, both in terms of mental health services as well as trained professionals able to provide them.

The Psychoanalytic Therapy and Research Centre (PTRC) is trying in a modest way, to address both areas. PTRC has been working in Mumbai for over 40 years, creating awareness about mental health issues and providing treatment to children, adults and families.

The PTRC has three key objectives:

  • To offer affordable psychoanalytic psychotherapy at its two Clinics in Mumbai.
  • To train and develop a core group of dedicated professionals who can offer specialist psychoanalytic psychotherapy and consultative services to those who need it.
  • Community Outreach - To spread psychoanalytic thinking
