Observed mental and emotional health issues in the US
During her stay in the US, Sneh Kulkarni, a homemaker and IT professional observed the mental issues faced by the school children and employees working in big organizations. Sneh realized that mental and emotional health were major problems and has to be addressed with utmost care.
Returned to India to work on mental health
Sneh was dependent H4 visa holder that barred her from working in the US but she observed the mental health issues very minutely there, “When I returned to India in 2017, I realized that mental and emotional stress was a major problem in the country, especially due to cut-throat competition and rate race for victory. Parents also pile unnecessary pressure on their children to achieve their dreams. I seriously felt that something has to be done,” Sneh told Chalgenius.
Launched IPHM in January
Sensing the seriousness of the situation, she started Integrated Personalized Healthcare Management (IPHM) Services in Mumbai in January 2020 which is a leading healthcare management service provider with a holistic approach to the pain points of educational institutions and corporations alike, “We believe mental health and emotional well being of employees are the tangible assets of organisations, and hence seeks to look at the big picture in the existing employee – employer relationship,” she added.
Sneh says that IPHM works with large and mid-sized companies to evaluate gaps in employee performance related to the overall health with a balance between the heart, body, mind and soul.
Vital role during Covid-19
She concedes that her role has increased during the pandemic as emotional and mental stress has been on steady rise, “The fear of losing jobs and working from home has been generating lot of stress among people because there has been increasing insecurities due to layoffs and slash in salaries. Unlike other countries, it is not always possible to work from home here because of the lack of set-up and distraction. We have a team of doctors and health professionals who counsel the people to help them to cope up with the issues plaguing them,” she told Chalgenius.
IPHMs focused approach in the workplace of its client organisations acts as a conduit to bridge and enhance the gap in employee performance, Sneh added.
