While at her previous job, Nikitha Shiv realized there was no convenient outlet for the stress that had been building up while working late hours under constant pressure. When she shared this idea with her friends, Varun Mayya (Founder of Jobspire) and Shashank Udupa (ex-IIFL Banker), they shared similar sentiments and that's when the 3 of them decided on starting something to help other millenials cope with this issue. The idea was simple - provide an easy-to-access and affordable solution that can help every Indian going through the same ordeal.
As India’s first 4-week purely science-backed online platform, based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - which has been proven to help scores of people worldwide combat their mental health issues. The team has worked with various therapists across India, analyzed over 1400 research papers, and put down content that ultimately formed the basis of this platform. This was then converted into a 13-episode web-series that presented this data in a simple and easy-to-understand manner, such that people across cities and cultures could understand and benefit from. Today, Calm India is a one-stop solution for mental health featuring content in different forms - Video course, Audio Books, Blog, Community, Quizzes and Flash Cards.
