What we have achieved so far and Our Future Plans

We reached 2.5 million of you in 2020. A great achievement for us which we are very grateful for.

2.5 million users Reached

We launched a wellness app in 2019 but it took a toll on our own mental health and we chose this medium to reach you instead.

Launched an app & Failed

Whilst 2.5 million of you visiting our site was very humbling, we appreciate that millions more could have been reached if we picked up the camera and so we will!

Launch a Youtube Channel

Each month, over 170 of you reach out to us via email seeking some for of help. We heard you and so we will be launching a Mental health support group by February 14.
