India Mental Health market


India Mental Health market is anticipated to grow with a considerable CAGR over the forecast period (2022-2028). Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feels, and act as we cope with life. Problems related to mental health are characterized by the absence of positive emotion, low mood, and a range of associated cognitive, physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms.

According to the WHO, the burden of mental health problems in India is 2443 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) per 100 00 population; the age-adjusted suicide rate per 100 000 population is 21.1. This increase in the number of patients suffering from mental illnesses has created the need for quicker healthcare. Therefore, to address this issue, digital healthcare tools are offering the potential to scale up the treatment and decrease the cost of treatment for patients suffering from various mental illnesses which in turn is leading to growth in the adoption of various mental health applications. Furthermore, the covid-19 pandemic has also created an impact on mental health among children and young people in India. For instance, as per a survey previewed in The State of the World’s Children 2021, nearly 14% of 15 to 24-year-olds in India, or 1 in 7, reported often feeling depressed or having little interest in doing things. Moreover, The rapid growth in the working-age population in the country is also expected to drive the mental health market in the forthcoming years as they suffer from more stress leading to various mental disorders.
