We are TheMindClan. We are here to make mental health care a journey that centers your choice.
TheMindClan is a mental health platform dedicated to giving individuals access to a curated list of tools for mental health care. We vow to be a system that makes mental health a personal journey again by centering your choice and mobilizing community support.
The existing mental health care systems are plagued with stigma, quick to pathologize, and driven by a cookie-cutter approach that does not take individual needs into account.
We intend to flip the system on its head by placing people's choice at the centre. We intend to become a system that understands you for who you are and is sensitive to your identities.
We believe that the intimidation, judgment and stigma surrounding mental health can be chipped away when people are able to make choices for their mental health care by themselves, based on their current needs, in a non-threatening community space like ours. .
We firmly believe that there's no cookie-cutter approach to mental health care, and are devoting our time and resources to let individuals understand a more personal form of caring for their mental health. We are also completely volunteer-driven, and offer the platform to our users at no cost.
Through our platform, we want the world to know that we are grounded in feminist, social justice, LGBTQIA+ liberation, and other movements of inclusion. We center the needs and invite the experiences of each and every individual irrespective of age, gender identity, sexuality, religion, caste, colour, or physical ability. We believe that through discussions we learn, and through inclusion and empathy we grow individually, as a community, and as an effective mental health care system.
We offer you access to a curated range of support services that you can reach out to, when you're stuck at 'Where Do I Start?'
Start with a service that you feel the most comfort and resonance with. We hope that a safe and trustful partnership with the curated list of professionals and the communities on our platform make your mental health journey a little less alone, and a little more hopeful.
