To bring relief when & where it is needed most
Stress, depression, and anxiety, once conditions experienced mainly by older people, now affect younger age groups. It is not uncommon for teenagers and young adults to suffer from stress, anxiety, and depression as they struggle to complete their education, pass examinations and survive in complex family arrangements. In addition, 50% of young people show signs of mental illness before 14 years old with 70% showing symptoms before 18 years old. It is these young people we wish to help.
