This has led to a new study by the Indian Council for Medical Research, which is a great improvement in earlier studies.

Talking about various types of mental disorders in Kolkata, some common ones seen are major depression and anxiety, alcohol use disorder among others. The rate of suicide cases to has been growing high in the city with many youngsters resorting to this step often. Statistics from previous years suggest that over 100 people commit suicides every day!

A number of factors including family problems, drug abuse, and pressure at the workplace can lead to mental illnesses such as addiction or schizophrenia, etc. A lot more needs to be done by the government and NGOs alike to address these issues.

A study has shown that in the state of West Bengal, Delhi and Maharashtra, there is a high number of children who are on psychiatric medication. Over 25 percent of them under the age group of 15 years were found to be on such drugs. Poor monitoring and nonadherence to protocols can make things worse for these kids.
