Mariwala Health Initiative

Mariwala Health Initiative

Mariwala Health Initiative (MHI) is the leading funding body in the field of mental health in India. Their goal is to improve the overall well-being in India. They conceptualize well-being as a combination of mental health and social factors and aspire to create a holistic mental health ecosystem in India that is accessible to everyone across social landscapes. They are a catalyzing and enabling force for organizations that strive towards this goal.

MHI aligns with a rights-based, psychosocial approach that considers mental health concerns as a disability. They expand on the narrow medical understandings of mental health and illness and looks at it through a systemic lens. They understand caste, gender, religion, region, ability and sexuality based oppression as a major contributor to mental health distress. They encourage community-based interventions and actively promote deinstitutionalization of mental health services. They are a feminist, LGBTQ affirmative and user-survivor centred organization.
