This approach, helps a mental health professional to consider and understand all aspects of an individual’s life - the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and mental. At Mpower, all the mental health practitioners work towards providing holistic care to improve the client’s experience.

What is multidisciplinary care?
This is when professionals from different disciplines come together to deliver comprehensive care to the client. At Mpower, we have many professionals under one roof and therefore are able to provide integrated care to our clients.

This means that you can be working with multiple professionals on our team. For example, at Mpower Mumbai a child can receive their ADHD diagnosis and relevant prescription medications from the psychiatrist, engage in play therapy for emotional regulation with a psychologist and also work on remedial education with a special educator.

This is greatly beneficial for clients, as all the professionals they are working with can collaborate and work towards the same goals so as to help the client best.
