The growing awareness among people about the importance of mental health and the launch of numerous mental wellness applications are driving the market growth. The introduction of major health campaigns like Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) in order to raise awareness regarding mental health and the burgeoning use of connected devices across the young population is boosting the market value.
