World Health Organisation (WHO) defines Health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. But a majority of us deliver the least care to our mental health.

The brain is the hub that works to balance our functions, emotions and behaviours.

Billions of neurons in our brain have built a strong network through which neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine send signals, enabling our mental health to function at its best. If the connections break between these neurons and an imbalance occurs in neurotransmitters to any internal or external factors, it gradually causes Psychological Disturbance.
