Building the world’s first Live Mental Health Platform

Why We're Doing This

At MindLabs, we're driven by a simple, but powerful goal: to make the world a happier place.

Almost everyone experiences a mental health problem at some point in their lives; whether it's through stress, anxiety or depression. In a time where it's become expected to take care of your physical health, there's still a stigma associated with taking care of your mental health. We want to change that, and we need your help.
