There has been a significant increase in the call volumes and turn outs at our walk in clinics over the last two years. Call volumes have doubled from 2016 to 2017 and tripled to 2018. This clearly reflects that cases of depression, abuse and relationship problems are on the rise in the community and there is a need for greater intervention. As a response, Sanjeevani aims to expand its reach this year in 2019 and empower more and more victims to lead better lives.
