A recent incident shocked India. Arjun Bhardwaj, a 23-year old posted a video on Facebook before taking his own life by jumping off the 19th floor of a Mumbai hotel. Perhaps, if his friends and family had recognised signs of depression in him, they would have maybe got him some help and his life wouldn’t have ended the way it did. When it comes to dealing with mental health issues, India is far behind.
