How does one identify problems of mental health in an individual?
Smitha S from Guindy
Persons under stress or having problems of mental health always reach out for help. It is important to listen and be able to understand them. They will show signs of isolation and loss of appetite.
It is mostly because they have overloaded themselves with work or other worries. If they begin to distance themselves from family and friends, it may be a sign that they need help. If your attempts to help them by talking to them fail, try to take them to a psychiatrist.

Why does the demand supply of organs continue to be so high in the country despite awareness sufficiently high?
Arathi S from Nungambakam
In India, most people generally do not donate their hearts due to religious significance. They hold a religious belief that the dead will not be reincarnated if the heart is taken away.
Many patients are still suffering because of the lack of donor awareness. We need to remove this thought from people mind and should encourage them to come forward and help other families.
