All over the world, the stigma surrounding mental illness is pretty strong. There is also several misplaced information that floats around when it comes to mental illnesses. Recently there has been a movement to create awareness on mental illnesses and disorders. In India, there is an extensive misunderstanding and limited knowledge amongst the general population about people who suffer from some kind of mental illness or the illness itself in general.
An object of such ignorance himself, Harsh Songra decided to do something about it. Harsh was diagnosed dyspraxia in his childhood and an incident when a teacher told his parents that he should be sent to a school for disabled children because he failed one paper in sixth grade embedded in his mind. He decided to do something about this, and while trying to distract himself from his breakup with his girlfriend, he learnt to code and the My Child app was born.
The app helps parents screen for mental disorders by inputting a few questions. The app asks questions pertaining to a childs height, weight and yes or no', based on the answers, the app suggests what could be areas of concern, and after partnering with Practo, also helps people find doctors. Harsh was named one of the influencers by Forbes in their 30 under 30 feature.
In a world where everyone keeps waiting for the change, people like Harsh are inspirations to put the skills you have to good use and do a little for the world you live in.
