By becoming a sponsor of THRANI team, you can make a big difference. For more than seven years, Foundation for Integrated Research in Mental Health has saved thousands of human lives suffering from AIDS, mental illnesses and attempted suicides. THRANI team has been a driving force behind several breakthroughs in community based prevention intervention activities. More and more efforts to improved treatment facilities and care for AIDS and severe mental illnesses are on the horizon. The new millennium presents a special challenge to THRANI team. While much has been accomplished in our enduring fight against AIDS, mental illnesses and preventing suicides, much more needs to be done. Some painful facts are:
* Every three minutes someone in Kerala attempt suicide.
* One in every 10 Keralite is suffering from psychological problems.
* More than 70,000 Keralites (adults and children) are now affected by AIDS.
* Majority of the HIV positive women have contracted HIV from their husbands.
Yes, now is the time to join us on a Journey of Hope.
