Welcome to


Poddar Foundation was formed in 1983 with the mandate of being of service towards the health and wellness of India.

The Poddar Foundation is focused on building awareness around mental, behavioral and emotional health issues and its effects on our everyday lives. We continuously focus on enabling a healthy India by working tirelessly to break through the environmental and societal barriers.

One of the most prominent barriers towards mental health issues is the lack of understanding and the stigma attached to it. This prevents people from reaching out for help in their times of need. The Foundation works through its flagship program ‘SILENCE तोड़ो’ to sensitize people with understanding and knowledge about mental health and its various issues. The main agenda as the name suggests, is to break the silent suffering of individuals.

We provide online and offline solutions for outreach that highlights expert opinions, and public views. To know more please click here.

All our programs are focused on preventing mental health illnesses from creeping into our lives. We reach out to society by running drives to educate people on the unrecognized threats of mental health imbalances and encourage coping strategies to live healthy, happy lives.
