About Caring Minds
First Super-Speciality Institute of Mental Health
Caring Minds is a state-of-the-art centre for psychological growth, the first of its kind in Kolkata, where our mental health professionals provide their expert services for issues both clinical and non-clinical at our institute, which sprawls over an area of 4000 square feet.
Mental health is a balance in all aspects of life. It is not the mere absence of disease, but a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.
The vision behind our institute is to introduce to our community a one-stop solution for all problems related to psychological well-being. Our team of specialists are trained to cater to our clients’ every requirement.
We at Caring Minds offer our patients varied services from psychometric assessment, detailed diagnosis, psychoeducation for the client, caregiver and community, along with tailor-made workshops. We offer psychotherapy, counselling and treatment along with psychosocial rehabilitation and follow-up services – all under one roof.
Caring Minds Story
What We Expect
We understand that calling for the first time is often quite scary and try our best to put you at ease while making your appointment. You can make an appointment. You can make an appointment with Caring Minds by calling our reception. When you call, you will be asked a series of questions to help ensure that you are booked in with the right person.
For example, we will ask if you have been referred by a specific Clinician, if not we may ask a few questions about the type of problem you are having so that we can match you with the appropriate Clinician. We also aim to find the best day and time suited to you and can put you on a cancellation wait-list if the ideal time slot is not available.
What We Think
Your mind is your most valuable asset; it defines who you are, how you feel and how you live your life. At Caring Minds we recognize that everyone is different, people don’t fit neatly into boxes and there is no single treatment formula that will fit everyone.
Our success is based on our commitment to understanding each person’s individual needs and circumstances, then tailoring an individualized evidence based treatment approach.
What You Need
For many people seeing a mental health counselor such as a Psychiatrist, Psychologist or Counselor for the first time can be quite daunting and confusing. At Caring Minds, we will make you feel secure, welcome and comfortable.

One important first step towards improved functioning is a thorough and comprehensive assessment. Making sense of your problems and life events and ensuring that any diagnosis is correct is a fundamental step. By giving a name to your set of symptoms, you and your clinician will be better informed about which strategies to use to help treat your problem. Different problems and diagnosis require different solutions. Sometimes two people with the same problem will require different solutions.
