  • Bravo! As a Psychiatrist, I’m all too aware of the mental health catastrophes that are commonly caused by child marriage. Sexual & Physical abuse, PTSD, Depression & Suicide are frequently encountered and the consequences of children not complying with parental decisions include honour-related violence ranging from acid-attacks to murder by nuclear family members. It is entirely appropriate that organisations of many varieties offer to assist the Indian Government put a stop to Child Marriage by offering alternative pathways that families can support whilst retaining their honour. Changing child marriage culture is a stated aim of the Indian Government and realistically, change will take place, at least initially, one girl at a time. I have no doubt that a tipping point will be reached, when societal pressure will reduce this practice to a negligible fringe. Keep up the great work!
