Behavioral Health Services
The World Health Organisation, in 1948, defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This holistic view of health motivated MEDALL Healthcare Pvt Ltd. to set up its behavioural health division, MEDALL Behavioural Health Services (MBHS) in Chennai on the 1st of January, 2011.
The ever widening gap between the prevalence of mental illness (around 60-70 million Indian citizens suffering from both severe and common mental disorders) and the less than meagre manpower to cater to it, was another reason that brought MBHS into existence.
MBHS offers counselling and psychotherapeutic services and operates with an agenda of not just rehabilitation but also prevention of mental illness and promotion of general wellbeing. We provide our counselling and psychotherapeutic services at the Medall centres in Chennai. Our team of specialised and qualified psychologists also work with various organisations and institutes, thereby reaching out to a larger section of people who are in need of counselling services.
