Our Story

An online mental health and well-being platform. We are based in Nepal and aim to provide online counselling and therapy services to Nepali people in and outside of Nepal.

Most of us feel lonely, sad or depressed at times as poor mental health affects nearly everyone at some point in their life.

It’s a normal reaction to loss, trauma or struggle. But when these feelings start to make one feel overwhelmed, it causes physical symptoms and keeps you from leading a normal and active life even.

Poor mental health is common, and it is curable, treatable and preventable. The importance here is to know that help is available.

Taboo Fear - Image

With mental illness seen as a taboo in most Nepali communities around the world, it is hard to talk about or disclose mental health issues and seek help even.

A few of many reasons why mental illness is seen as a taboo is the underlying fear of appearing as weak, vulnerable, judged by society and more. However, since the past couple of years, there has been increasing awareness on mental health hygiene and the consequences of poor mental health in our society, there are more published literature in different languages, social media contents and influencers and awareness campaigns.

The Ministry of Health and Population of Nepal estimates that about 15-20% of Nepal’s population may suffer from some form of mental illness.

Due to the pandemic of COVID-19 and lockdown in Nepal and other countries, this rate is estimated to have been increased.

Reported and visible consequences of poor metal health issues are an increase in the suicide rate, domestic violence, sexual assault and harassment, and more.
