"State of Geriatric Mental Health in India", by Dr Om Prakash and Dr Prerna Kukreti, India, 2013.

..."Most common psychiatric illnesses in the Indian elderly population are depression, dementia and anxiety disorders. 

Resources available to cater to the needs of elderly in the country are government and private psychiatric hospitals, non-governmental organisations and the family as caregivers.

Lack of awareness, inadequate training opportunities; inequitable distribution of health resources and virtual absence of chronic care disease models are the challenges that confound the future of geriatric psychiatry in India"...

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by
the way!
