80% children don’t get treated for mental disabilities in Lucknow
As per data, 80% children with mental disabilties in Lucknow do not go through a complete treatment course.
A study by the UP chapter of Indian Paediatrics Association has found that in most cases parents withdraw the treatment within one year of starting it.
Children with mental disorders need medical help and therapy. The study has highlighted the need of training the doctors to provide treatment using online platforms.
It was found after three years of research that only 12% mentally disabled children completed the treatment.
The cost of treatment is one of the factors involved and so is awareness about mental disabilities.
