Mind Ninja, founded by Dr. Mahrukh Khwaja, is an award-winning wellness startup, dedicated to improving workplace well-being, mental health and resilience of teams across the globe. Positive Psychologist and dentist, Dr Mahrukh works with organisations using research-backed neuroscience and psychology techniques, to empower professionals to feel better and do better, both in their career and in life.
of clinical experience “at the chair-side,” Dr. Khwaja has an insider’s perspective on the unique stressors affecting healthcare professionals. She also has first hand knowledge of the lack of industry-specific mental health tools and support for healthcare professionals — something she discovered during her own bout with burnout. With nothing of its kind currently available in the healthcare industry, she envisioned a system of support that, just like daily flossing and brushing, took a preventive maintenance approach to mental health. Drawing on the neuroscience of well-being and evidence-based positive psychology, she developed Mind Ninja as a solution that would help professionals and teams build greater workplace well-being, resilience, foster meaning, and avoid burnout.
Mind Ninja offers a comprehensive range of workplace wellbeing training, coaching, and wellness products that go beyond reducing symptoms of stress to generating a solid foundation of positive well-being. These tools are designed to help professionals and teams thrive in any environment, ensuring that their own bright smiles come from a place of genuine mental health. Dr. Khwaja has delivered Mind Ninja’s signature workshops and well-being programmes to bring transformative change to a diverse range of organisations, including Unilever, Colgate, NHS Health Education England, King's College London, Acteon, British Dental Association, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Mind Ninja received Global Health Pharma's 2022 Award for Excellence in Innovation and in the Top 50 dental professionals for FMC 2023-2020.
