Founded in 2019 by Pooja Khanna and Pankaj Chaddah, Mindhouse initially catered to mental wellness. However, subsequently pivoted to curative wellness. Currently, the startup offers a range of wellness services to patients suffering from health conditions and chronic illnesses that require significant lifestyle changes to tackle.
“Patients suffering from any long-drawn health condition, even pregnancy, always require a change in lifestyle in addition to clinical care,” said Pooja Khanna, Mindhouse’s cofounder.
