The modern world defines growth, prosperity, and success on the basis of material possessions. Leading a life of comfort and luxury is highly desirable. Our self-worth is often evaluated on the basis of what we have achieved or have the potential to do. We are always encouraged to have a competitive edge over others and stay ahead in the race. Gradually we are losing our core human values of cooperation and helping others in need.
We are highly aware of our physical well-being, spend time and money in huge proportions on medical bills, things we consume, hit the gym regularly to stay fit and so on and so forth. What stays ignored is our mental and psychological health until it reaches a point when it starts behaving highly malicious. We barely realize that mental health is equally important, if not more, at every stage of our life, as it directly affects emotional, psychological and social well-being. Our thoughts, feelings and how we behave and react to various situations are all influenced by our mental health.
Mental health issues can be caused by a variety of reasons. Any biological or genetic history, or a traumatic or abusive experience in life, can explain our behavior, mood swings, and thought process while we socialize or make decisions. Baltimore Humanitarian Service takes a few steps forward towards raising awareness of the importance of mental health disorders and helping those in need of them.

In today’s world, the menace of drug addiction has risen to alarming proportions. These rehabilitation programs also help in addiction recovery of patients having a history of drug abuse.
