Our Story

By developing and supporting the advocacy of mental health, we work to increase awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness. We also encourage people to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve as liaison between young people and the mental health community.

We are focused on removing the stigma that surrounds mental health issues, and creating a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues. As an organization, we aim to achieve this through online campaigns especially via our social media channels. We will also organize grassroots sensitization in rural communities, workshops, seminars, partner events.

We are well within the time of the Social Media, and these apps have come to serve as the platform for people to share their lives publicly, in real time. In these times where suicide rates are rising across the world, we have to now recognize that Social Media is the New Suicide Note, and we all have to listen.

Mental illness is a health state where our minds find it difficult to cope with the pressures thrown at us resulting in a chemical Imbalance in our brains. Unfortunately, some of us battling with one mental illness or the other have often been misread or shall I say misjudged by people around us. This prejudice...
People living with mental illness may experience stigma and discrimination from family, friends, colleagues and the community in general. Sometimes the stigmatization may even make them feel worse than they already feel from the mental illness itself. Honestly, it can be tough dealing with any form of mental illness, having to be socially isolated is...
So you have finally made it past that first hurdle of admitting to yourself that you need a professional for your mental health issues, and you want to see a psychiatrist or a shrink as some of us like to call them. However, you are not exactly sure how to go about it and you...
