LISSUN, a mental wellness start-up, has announced the launch of its first offline centre in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh.
This follows the recent tele mental health initiative announced in the Union Budget 2022, wherein the government too has recognised the need to address the rising cases of mental illness in the country.
Krishna Veer Singh- Co-founder & Director, LISSUN said, “Following my experience overseas, I could figure that mental wellness attains great significance across the globe. However, in India it is still a taboo. The whole idea behind LISSUN is to break the barriers and begin the conversation around mental wellness. Only when you acknowledge the challenge, will you be able to take steps towards resolving it. Being born and brought up in Muzaffarnagar itself, understanding the big gap of mental health services in the city, when we decided to go phygital we chose the city to mark the launch.”
Tarun Gupta, Co-founder, LISSUN added, “We have been putting all our efforts towards drawing attention to the grave subject of mental and emotional wellbeing. We recently organised a mental health awareness session alongside The Association of Physicians of India, Muzaffarnagar. Now with the launch of our first offline centre we aim to encourage people to come forward and avail proper treatments, instead of suppressing the word.”
Dr Preeti Singh, Chief Medical Officer, LISSUN further shared, “It is great to be a part of the new initiative at LISSUN. In order to penetrate deeper in tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India, digital alone would not have sufficed. A lot of people face the problem to access help, and on top of it there are many who are not even aware of the very existence of a solution. We truly believe to see a lot of lives getting changed for better through this newly established channel by LISSUN.”
