It has been found that over 300 million people in the world, and 14.3% of the Indian
population, suffer from mental health issues. Since this data was taken in 2017, we can be
certain that the actual number is far more than this due to the widespread distress caused by
In 2020 alone, an average of 418 people took their own lives daily in India. The stigma surrounding mental health is something that should be acknowledged. There are very few people among us who have not had their emotional distress be trivialised by their family or friends.
“Everyone feels that way sometimes.”, “Stop making excuses”, and “Just get over it.” - These are some phrases that we have all heard at least once in our lifetime. While it is true that feeling sad or nervous occasionally is another part of being human, it becomes a problem when this begins to affect your daily life. In this world, where the main question that dictates most people’s lives is ‘what will people think’, it is understandable that asking for help can be incredibly difficult.
The main aim of Project C Foundation is to break down the barriers in an individual’s journey
of seeking support for their mental health. We attempt to make looking for help easy and
stress-free. We provide a safe space where people can share their struggles without being
judged or disregarded. Our services will hopefully leave you more in-tune with your feelings.
What Project C Foundation hope to achieve:
➔ Make you feel understood -
Many people feel guilty about certain feelings, such as
anger. Helping you understand that your emotions are valid is one of our goals. It is
only when you become at peace with your feelings that you can deal with them
➔ Build a real connection -
We hope that your relationship with our volunteers are built
on a strong foundation and is based on trust and understanding. While we understand
that talking to a person online can make the relationship feel superficial, we will do
our best to form a true bond with anybody who wishes to seek help.
➔ Help you come up with effective coping strategies -
‘Coping’ refers to methods used by people to manage unpleasant emotions and deal with difficult situations. Everyone uses different coping strategies, knowingly or unknowingly. We can help you recognize if the coping strategies you use are efficient for you or if it needs to be modified to suit you better.

Seeking support for your mental health is one of the best things you can do to achieve a better quality of life.
