According to WHO “Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” It makes up an integral part of an individual’s capacity to lead a fulfilling life, including the ability to form and maintain relationships, and to take decisions regarding other responsibilities via educational, employment, housing etc. (1) Mental and behavioural problems are among the most burdensome, around the globe, and are likely to increase in subsequent decades. There is an urgent need to foster neuroscience education and research for sound mental health of Indian population specifically coming generations.
