Shant Manas social workers conducted Mental Awareness Programs to the villagers of Keelamathur, Achampathu, Kamatchipuram and Melakkal. The access to mental health care is limited and stigma is attached to mental illness in rural areas.  These mental health programs aimed to deliver information about symptoms and treatment methods of mental illness.  The importance of early detection and family support in the recovery from mental illness was stressed.  The villagers eagerly participated in the awareness program. Shant Manas social workers identified few new cases of mental illness as they conducted these mental health awareness programs.
