Antara is a non-profit psychiatric facility in Kolkata, dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poor and destitute afflicted with mental illness and addiction.
Hundreds of patients are treated at Antara at concessional rates or free of charge every year. Antara has been working in the field of over 40 years. We do not receive any government or regular funding support – our funds come in the form of donation, sponsorship and endowments from socially conscious and caring individuals and Corporate Houses all over the world. Antara cordially invites you to become a friend of Antara.
Today, Antara has involved as many individuals in its growth and development as possible. These individuals, spread across the globe are known as the Friends of Antara. The Friends of Antara provide financial, technical, social and moral support to Antara.
