HealthEminds: Web-based medical psycology and counselling service launched

Dr Sunita Maheshwari and Ankita Puri are co-founders of this venture

HealthEminds, an online medical start-up focusing on providing mental health therapy and wellness advice through an innovative, easy to use and engaging online platform, recently had the ‘Beta’ launch of its website: www.healtheminds.com. The website allows for an individual to access a panel of certified experts such as psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, life coaches, and have an online video consultation session from the comfort of their home. It is confidential, completely secure and with protection of the client's privacy. HealthEminds already has a panel of 35 specialists trained on online video counselling available for consultation.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Sunita Maheshwari said, "We are very proud to launch this web based psychology counselling service. From our experience in telemedicine, we realised there is a crying need for confidential counselling without having to visit a doctor’s office. This can improve the mental health of so many individuals who suffer daily from stress and depression, and do not know how or where to seek professional help."

“In India we have a gamut of issues such as performance and cultural stress, anxiety, marital issues, parenting, addiction, coping with loss of near and dear ones etc. Probably no less than in the west or maybe even more, as individuals cope with rapid urbanisation and loss of the traditional support of joint families. However, most people do not have access to professional counselling to help them face such life issues. The biggest issues being stigma, taking out the time and the awareness that counselling can help. We at HealthEminds are setting out to change the dynamics and bring mental healthcare to every person’s home,” said Ankita Puri, Co-founder of HealthEminds.
