Mission:
The Banyan: Changing the face of mental health care in India.

The Banyan provides accessible services to those with mental illness who would otherwise fall through the State care cracks. It does this with health centres in communities that ensure access to social and medical care for the client and their family. With this philosophy of inclusive care for all at its heart, The Banyan also strives to raise awareness and dispell the myths that surround mental illness in order to sensitise families, communities and government, and instigate a real change in the profile and direction of the sector as a whole.
