InnerHour is a mental health platform using technology to provide quality mental healthcare to those suffering from mental health concerns in India.
Mental health in India needs an intervention
Nearly 200 million people struggle with mental illness in India. In fact, India accounts for a third of the global burden of depression, addictions and suicides.
Yet, there is a huge treatment gap in mental health - nearly 85% of individuals struggling with mental health concerns do not get the treatment they need. This treatment gap is the result of multiple barriers faced by individuals who are struggling - including lack of awareness, stigma, and poor access to quality support.
Dr. Amit Malik established InnerHour with the vision of solving this treatment gap in India. Based on his clinical expertise as a psychiatrist in the UK for 15 years, along with his operational and commercial experience of managing large-scale mental health services, he knew that technology had to be at the heart of solving the mental health problem in India.
To this end, Amit built a tech-enabled platform offering self-awareness assessments, a range of CBT-based self-help tools, personalised content, and tele-consultation with qualified therapists.
In 2019, social entrepreneur Neha Kirpal joined InnerHour as co-founder. A global mental health ambassador with 2 successful startup exits over the last ten years, Neha brings to InnerHour her entrepreneurial learnings across sectors and a deep understanding of the lived experiences of those suffering with mental health concerns.
Amit and Neha lead a team of 20+ exceptional mental health, technology and business professionals, who are all deeply passionate about solving the treatment gap for mental health in India.
We believe that a tech-led ecosystem, that offers seamless continuity of care & support, is very much the need of the hour for the millions suffering & seeking quality mental healthcare today. The next phase in InnerHour’s journey is to set up an omni-channel platform delivering digital and multi-professional services catering to a range of mental health conditions.
