It’s World Mental Health Day today, and we wanted to ask – how are you doing?
It is important to take care of your mental health, and therefore, we scoped out some of the best mental health practitioners and counsellors on our platform who you can reach out to.
Every entrepreneur needs to maintain a work-life balance. On top of that, it is okay to ask for professional help, whenever you feel overwhelmed, depressed or anxious. As of 2020, of 150 million Indians who need mental health care, only 30 million are seeking professional help from psychologists.
This needs to change, and perhaps, we can help.
After all, the first step is to ask.
InnerSight Counselling Services
Founded by psychologists Ajanta De and Mahesh Natarajan in 2011, InnerSight is a counselling forum that brings together professional mental health practitioners with several years of collective corporate work experience and life experience.
On 22 May, Ajanta De quoted to use for Mental Health Awareness saying “If you are looking for a specific kind of therapy, ask your therapist interview-style questions to know their expertise in that area. For example: with children’s counselling or marriage counselling, you need a specialised therapist. Do not be wary, ask away.”
The counselling forum is based out of Bangalore and offers specialised mental health consultation services with their affiliation network. Check out their page here.
