Samaritan for the mentally disabled


VADODARA: Mental health conditions in children that are not visible are relatively unknown among citizens. However, a housewife from the city has embarked on a drive to spread awareness about mental disability among children.

Manju Kaushal began the initiative in 2006 and formed a core group of 10 parents with children who have mental disabilities. Kaushal’s activities under the group ‘Specko Brainy’ aims at the social acceptance and inclusion of the mentally disabled children.
