FLY, Don't Sink!!

At Well Heard, we believe that if provided the right care and support for mental health issues, everyone can live their life to the fullest and be the best version of themselves. Therefore, we bring to you Well Heard, a community that aims to break the taboos of mental health and make mental health services widely available and accessible even in the comfort of your home.

Mental Health has never been a topic that is easy to talk about specifically in our society. In spite of multiple social challenges, a global pandemic, economic crisis, spiking suicide rates and a constant increase in cardiovascular diseases, we fail to address our one and only driving force, our mental health. That is why, our aim is to make mental health a dinner table conversation. And normalise it as much as gifting flowers and chocolates to your loved ones.

Furthermore, we strongly believe that mental health is as important as physical health. It is vital to keep a constant check on your mental health and vent out even before it starts taking a toll on you. Therefore, we encourage everyone to be mindful of their mental health and seek support even when they are on the fence about it.

Our Founding Story

Only the shoe wearer knows where the shoe pinches. I, Kavalpreet Kaur, being diagnosed with mental health issues and struggling with them for over two years, realised how life and even trivial things can take a toll on us, irrespective of our mental resilience. You sink even when you want to fly, and no matter how many times you flap your wings, the burden of your mental health won't let you take off.

I shared my concerns about mental health with my friend Dharna Dua, psychologist and co-founder at Well Heard who had recently moved to India from the United Kingdom. A collective, not so sudden epiphany for us was the stigma surrounding mental health in our country. The expensive therapies and inaccessible counseling services further perpetuated the stigma around mental health, as if it is a luxury only the rich can afford.

Those discussions became a cause, our calling, and then took the form of research and surveys as the fire was put to the right use.

This is the story of our little founding family that wishes to bring back clear skies in your life by pushing aside gray clouds. We passionately believe that we can make mental health widely accessible, affordable and qualitative.

Evolution of our six-year old friendship into entrepreneurship is driven by the desire to be an ally to you.

Thank you for trusting us.
