About Us

It may seem exaggerated, but recent studies report that roughly 45 million Americans and hundreds of millions more around the world, that are living with some form of mental health disorder. What’s even more astounding, is that many of these individuals don’t have access to professional help. There is a severe shortage of mental health experts all over the world, including in the United States. Well over 50% of U.S. districts do not have a practicing mental health professional. 

Treating mental health conditions can include more than just traditional in-person therapy. Information on wellness, local support groups, and online therapy services are all helpful tools in helping to improve one’s mental health.
