“WE MAKE THEM FEEL ‘CARED FOR
Urban Melange|February 2021
Mental health has always been neglected but now with awareness in society people are openly addressing their issues.

The LGBTQ+ community has always been facing a lot of issues in society that affect their mental health majorly. United We Care, found by Shumita Kakkar is an application which have professionals dealing with the mental health issues of people from every gender. They make sure to counsel and focus on the mental health of the LGBTQ+ community. We talked to Shumita about the application and how is it helping in making this world a better place.

Tell us something about United We Care. How did you come up with this application?

United We Care is an app-based platform found in January 2020. It helps connect people with a large number of professional psychologists, life coaches, and lawyers. United We Care is a groundbreaking initiative that doesn’t focus on merely addressing the problem, but identifying the root causes and offering holistic sustainable solutions to the users. I found this app with an aim to help people overcome various challenges that adversely impact their mental peace and wellness. The app has an integrated social, mental, financial, and legal support system for all genders and age groups. We offer expertise to help men, women, youth, children and LGBTQ+ communities facing issues such as separation or other difficulties in their lives.

What is the most common issue that people come up with while consulting you through the application?

Stress management and depression are the commonest challenges faced by people. Today, there are numerous factors leading to stress depending on the user’s profile. Children and teenagers are worried about their education, employed professionals are hit by financial and job concerns and homemakers are dealing with additional work and responsibilities in the new normal. That’s where UWC is trying to reach out to all the users and make them feel ‘cared for.’

Do you think with changing times, the LGBTQ youth are coming forward and addressing their problems more openly?
