The ever increasing complexities of modern life are creating more problems for the human mind to cope with.

We strive to extend a helping hand to the man in mental distress.


The Mission of ANTARA is to alleviate suffering of people afflicted with mental illness, addiction and alcoholism, especially destitute and poor. ANTARA shall strive to do this with love, patience and compassion.
