““Depression or anxiety is an established medical condition that needs to be addressed with protocol-driven diagnostic procedures and treatment modalities. However, when we talk about mental health, the chances of relapse are high, and to avoid this we need to go beyond conventional medication. This is where Daivam stands out, we treat our patients with functional medicine, that goes one step further to unearth the root of the problem and treats it completely.” Says Dr. Priyamvada Dua, Consultant-Psychoneuroimmunotherapy & Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Daivam Wellness.
According to WHO, India is the most depressed country in the world.
“Almost 89% Indians are bogged down by stress related to health, finance & high pressure jobs and majority of them are not comfortable talking about their issues. It’s important for all Health & Wellness players to create awareness around depression and break the stigma. Through Daivam’s unique digital campaign we intend to reach out to people and be that friend with whom people can share all their apprehensions, without having to worry about getting disclosed, judged or misguided” says Divya Verma, Marketing Head, Daivam Wellness.
