Founder/ CEO's Message
The WHO constitution states: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Mental illness has been part of the human condition for as long as our species has existed, affecting countless individuals, families and Communities. For too long, we have detached the mind from the body and regarded mental conditions as something separate from our overall health. The reality, of course, is that mental and physical health are closely connected, with each contributing to overall wellbeing.
Efforts to tackle major global problems such as mental health must be collaborative and sustainable. In this spirit, we take oath in promoting and practicing high quality, evidence-based care to our service users. We will develop and maintain a reputation for providing excellent, recovery focused care across a comprehensive range of mental health services by promoting maximum ways to improve and support a holistic approach for mental health with utmost dignity and respect.

"I am very pleased to meet Dr Shankar. Before meeting him we have tried many doctors in UAE and USA for almost a year for my daughters teen depression treatment but we were not reaching anywhere we were completely lost and really worried that point in time. But fortunately we have met Dr. Shankar and things started changing positively for my daughter. we are very happy to see the continuous improvements in her condition from day one. As a father I would like to thank Dr. Shnakar for his efforts and help. I would highly recommend him and his clinic. They are very professional, friendly, helpful and reasonable as well. Best regards to the entire team of Openminds. Keep doing fantastic job. Thank you"

A Satisfied Client
Open minds is a very welcoming and well administered place. Great patient experience matters as much as comprehensive treatment offering. It’s a Dubai, UAE, and even world reference as state-of-the-art patient care facility.
A Satisfied Client
Very effective. It was easy to establish a great client / clinician relationship with Dr Shankar as he is extremely personable. Throughout my recovery journey with Open Minds he was encouraging, proactive and supportive. I would also say that he (and Open Minds more generally) were very supportive when I needed to on several occasions reschedule appointments and - for the most part - would be extremely accommodating.
