Mental Health start-up ‘Juno Clinic’ raises Rs.8 crores
Dr. Avantika Batish is working as Director Strategy and Healthcare at International Health Emergency Learning and Preparedness. Also, guest faculty for MBA (HR) and MBA Healthcare Management at various B-Schools and is a soft skills trainer.
Juno Clinic, part of Davman Technology Services is an online and offline start-up focused on mental health counseling and treatment. According to recent estimates by The Lancet Study in India only 1 in 10 people with mental health disorders receives evidence-based treatment.
The biggest challenge that stops people from seeking professional help for issues such as depression, anxiety or relationship conflicts is the social stigma attached with seeking help from professionals.
Further, there is a dearth of trained professionals in India as most psychiatrists and psychologists operate only in the top metros. Understanding the need gap, the company launched its online counseling clinic: www.juno.clinic in January 2016 that allows counseling through online video connection, phone or chat, and has also started offline counseling clinics in Mumbai, with the first two clinics set up in Khar and Powai.
The company is not an aggregator for service providers but hires senior psychologists and psychiatrists full time, all of whom adhere strictly to American psychiatry protocols. The company currently has a medical team of 35.
