Here We are to Help YOU

Nestled in the vibrant heart of Old Washermanpet, Chennai, stands Aruvadai Psychological Support Services, a sanctuary for healing and growth that resonates deeply with the concept of harvest. Founded by psychologist Mridhula, Aruvadai draws its name from the Tamil word for "harvest," encapsulating the essence of reaping the rewards of nurtured potential and transformed lives.

Our Founder

Mridhula's journey towards establishing Aruvadai was marked by an unwavering commitment to making a positive impact. Before the inception of the center, she collaborated closely with Rotaract clubs in Chennai, planting the seeds of psychological support in the minds of over a thousand children, helping them navigate the complexities of Child Sexual Abuse. This early cultivation of trust and understanding laid the foundation for the thriving venture that would later become Aruvadai.


Setting out on their first endeavor, Aruvadai chose a path of compassion and care by offering psychological support to HIV patients. Like skilled farmers tending to their fields, Aruvadai nurtured hope and healing amidst the challenges faced by those grappling with illness and societal stigma.


However, just as a bountiful harvest can be affected by unforeseen weather, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world. In the face of this adversity, Aruvadai demonstrated resilience, adapting like experienced cultivators to the changing landscape. They seamlessly embraced video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, and social media platforms like Instagram, transplanting their nurturing approach into the digital realm. Just as skilled farmers tend to their crops regardless of the circumstances, Aruvadai continued to foster growth and connection even amidst turbulent times.


The center's impact surpassed geographical borders, much like seeds carried by the wind to distant lands. Collaborating with organizations overseas, Aruvadai cultivated a network that enriched their collective knowledge and wisdom, akin to different crops sharing nutrients in a harmonious ecosystem. With more than 100 regular clients benefiting from their therapy services, Aruvadai flourished into a fertile ground of well-being.

Just as a bountiful harvest sustains a community, Aruvadai Psychological Support Services stands as a symbol of cultivation, empathy, and resilience. Like expert harvesters, they sow the seeds of transformation, nurture growth amidst challenges, and gather the fruits of well-being, offering a haven for those seeking solace, healing, and personal growth in the abundant field of their care.

Mridhula envisions Aruvadai as the ultimate destination to cater to a diverse range of psychological needs for individuals. Her goal is to establish Aruvadai as a comprehensive and all-encompassing solution, providing a singular hub where people can find the support they require for their mental well-being. Ultimately she wants to cultivate a sense of wholeness and fulfillment for each individual who walks through its doors.
