Adayu shall focus on bringing digital tele-mental health and residential in-patient mental health services including both acute psychiatry, deaddiction and rehabilitation, the team revealed.

“As a part of the Fortis National Mental Health program, we are launching Adayu Mindfulness, a Fortis Group Company, as a dedicated vertical for comprehensive mental health care. India’s mental health burden is estimated at USD 2-3 billion with about 1 in every 8 people estimated to be suffering from a mental health disorder in some form. Hence, mental wellness solutions are pertinent especially in a society like India where mental health is deeply stigmatised leading to lack of awareness. Having pioneered various initiatives and campaigns on mental health and holistic wellness, the launch of Adayu marks a new chapter in our journey as we merge innovation and AI with clinical excellence and will be offering highest level of care, striving towards our endeavour to foster awareness, improve access,” Dr Samir Parikh, Chairman, Fortis National Mental Health Program, Fortis Healthcare said during the press conference.

Under this collaboration, United We Care’s innovative AI technology will integrate seamlessly with Adayu’s established network of mental health professionals.

This combination will offer a comprehensive approach to mental wellness, including:

  • AI-powered self-assessment tools: Users can gain valuable insights into their mental health status through personalised assessments which are administered by United We Care’s AI virtual wellness coach, Stella.
  • Enhanced access to care: The platform will connect individuals with Fortis’ trained Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psycho-oncologists, Sports therapists, Yoga experts, Art based therapy providers and also Physiotherapists, reducing wait times and geographical barriers.
  • Self-Care Tools: United We Care powered by Adayu provides a range of resources from videos to audios, exercises and journals to provide holistic care with a personal touch.
  • 24/7 support: Apart from the Fortis 24X7 helpline number people will now also have access to Stella’s support 24X7, 365 days a year.

“We are thrilled to partner with Adayu, a leader in mental healthcare delivery, to bring our AI-powered solutions to a wider audience. Together, we aim to revolutionize the way mental health is approached, making it more accessible, affordable, efficient, and personalized for everyone,” Ritu Mehrotra, CEO & Founder of United We Care said.
