World Health Organization [ WHO ]
Mental Health is a state of Well-Being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.
The positive dimension of mental health is stressed in WHO's definition of health as contained in its constitution: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
We at AGAM breathe towards Positive Mental Health and Well-Being.
AGAM SOURCE Of Life and Beyond
I owe my life to the four most precious people, without whose divine love and care, I would not have been what I am today. My mother N. Saraswathy, father A. Shanmugasundaram , grandmother Ulagammal & late grandfather Arunachalam. Thankful to my grandparents who managed me when parents worked for a living.
I was the first child in the family. What should have been their most delightful moment turned out to be their most depressing one. Yes, I was born with a huge swelling in my spinal cord, which in medical terms is called Lipo-Meningo-Myelocele. I was operated for that when I was just 9 months old. I am moved even today when I imagine how my dear parents must have nurtured me during those initial 9 months till that huge swelling was removed.
This is what I call unconditional love that is showered by parents. I will continue to face certain neurological challenges known only to my close circle of family and friends. But, this life that I lead, and the joy I experience are all because of my beloved parents. Thank you Amma and Appa. I have no words to express my love and gratitude.
