I am Karuna. Three years ago my daughter was married to a doctor. Initially, she was very happy with her husband, new family and one year later she even gave birth to a baby. She came back to my house for postnatal care. After few days of shifting, we started to notice change in her behaviour. She started being alone, not mingling with anyone, away from the baby. We thought this might be natural as she is tired taking care of the baby and would vanish in few days. But her symptoms worsened. She lost interest in herself, her baby, husband, family, everything. She started to fight with her husband, us for inappropriate reasons. She attempted suicide as well. We worried and unable to take a decision on what can be done to console her.
Thankfully, we got to know about Yuva Spandana Kendra and visited the center immediately. Yuva Samalochaka spoke with us very nicely and with complete focus.
After initial talk, she referred us to mental health center. Even though we were hesitant to go to mental health care, she made us aware about the importance of taking care of the mental health and how this step will be going to make big difference in my daughers life. Pros and cons of going to mental health care was noted and finally we decided to she needs treatment. We took her to the psychiatrist and now her condition has improved. She is assisting us in the household work, taking care of the baby. There is a great transition in the behavior of my daughter, which happened because of the entire Yuva Spandana team. Thank you for guiding us at the right time and providing information about best mental health care.
