Get to Know Us
The thought of Healing Nest germinated in the year 2014. Hemanti had a true passion to work with children and adolescents. After completing her academics and specialization on child development and mental health, she began her professional journey while working with few of the best companies as a Psychologist. She was happy to grow in this field and kept on adding different additions of skills to the already existing skills. 2011 she got married to Sagar after knowing him for few years. Sagar too developed his interest in the same field of child development. He is a sailor (merchant navy) and worked in a well reputed company for last 15 years. He has an exceptional connect with children and builds an immediate relation with any and every child Few years passed after marriage, now Hemanti and Sagar wanted to have a plan for themselves which made them more self sustaining, gave them satisfaction and gave them money along with it. Slowly Healing Nest started growing in their head, an organization they called their own. Of course they knew it had its own risks, and will take time to establish. With the mentoring of prominent professionals in the field of mental health and few other family members they took the courage and opened Healing Nest in Delhi. At the heart of Healing Nest is a family that has made peace with Mental Health. Hemanti Sikdar & Sagar Mangal originally created Healing Nest as an intervention center focusing on children who were developmentally delayed and needed help. They started with a small group of professionals. Slowly they developed a pre school program in order to serve the most challenging children of the surrounding district schools. And it quickly became apparent that our children needed specialized nest dedicated to meeting the mental healings. Today we take pride in the contributions we have made to the Mental Health services with the Children-centered approach and compassionate care. To help shape a world where mental illness is seen in the same light as every other illness, and all children receive the level of care they need and deserve, we have an awesome team of people with mix of personal and professional experiences and expertise in the field.
