unique community mental health initiative

IPH is a Social Enterprise with a strong community mental health focus

Our focus since inception has been to increase awareness about mental health and its scope in daily living. To improve availability of mental health care services. To increase the range of available services to cover people with problems as well those seeking self development, not merely people with illness.

In the process, we strive to reduce stigma associated with mental illness. IPH does not believe in limiting ‘Care’ only to mental health awareness, our model of mental health care promotion has extended beyond it and has evolved. Trained volunteers from our community are empowered to manage large-scale projects on their own.

About us

Dr. Anand Madhusudan Nadkarni has pioneered Institute for Psychological Health known as IPH, a unique NGO where more than seventy mental health professionals work under one roof who in addition to giving care to individuals, also operate number of support groups, continuous educational projects and services that range from a full-fledged Audio - Visual unit to a Telephonic Helpline Maitra. Under the stewardship of Dr. Nadkarni , unique community projects like Jidnyasa (Adolescent sensitization), VEDH (Vocational Education - Direction and Harmony) are now organized in several cities of Maharashtra. Thousands of students & parents attend these events and trained local volunteer groups organize them. Dr. Nadkarni is also Founder & Trustee of Muktangan De-addiction Centre in Pune, a comprehensive Rehab facility with over 200 inmates at a time & staff of over seventy committed workers.

We are today a family of over 70 mental health professionals ably assisted by a administrative team of 30 individuals & working along side are over 100 trained volunteers. Over 30 % of people coming to us are from a more compromised socio economic strata who receive services at a token cost.
