ANTARA – Vision 2025

The ever increasing complexities of modern life are creating more problems for the human mind to cope with. Mental illnesses, including drug addiction are assuming greater proportions as challenging social problems.

With the superfast pace of technological advances and the associated social upheavals, the human mind is challenged with unprecedented demands for adapting appropriate coping mechanisms. The emerging scenario calls for urgent and adequate steps for mental health promotion, prevention of mental illness, treatment, care and rehabilitation services. Antara is a response to this challenge. We strive to extend a helping hand to the man in mental distress.

Antara always believed in ‘Lighting a candle rather than cursing the darkness”.

Today, Antara is the largest Non profit, Non Governmental Organization in India extending holistic mental healthcare facilities to people from every socio-economic category, including destitute persons.

A lot more remains to be done.

Our vision is to reach out to every person in mental distress in this part of the world. Our mission is to build up and establish a model Organization, the best in the world, which extends the best form of mental healthcare with compassion.

Hence we keep dreaming, planning and implementing new ideas and initiatives that will help to remove the stigma of mental illness, protect the dignity of persons and families affected by mental illness, programs that will improve the mental health of the people and projects that will help to provide the best form of mental healthcare in terms of facilities and quality of care.

We invite all Individuals, Trusts & Foundations, Companies and Corporate Houses to come forward and participate in this great endeavour.
