Who we Are?

Abhaya was born out of a deep concern for the helpless mental patients of the Government Mental Hospitals of Kerala. The relentless efforts of ABHAYA focused the attention of the public, the Government and in particular the Judiciary, on the pitiable conditions of the mental hospitals. The most significant achievement of ABHAYA was that after 150 years of isolation, the mental hospitals of the State were thrown open to public scrutiny. Consequently the mental health scenario of Kerala has undergone a healthy change.​.


Come, without fear, where there is help service and care for you.


Where the mind is without fear
