We exist for compassionate healing.
Every person is created to flourish. But the burdens of violence and injustice fall heavily on the shoulders of many, especially those born into poverty. Experts estimate that as many as 2 in 5 people in low-income countries experience mental illness at any given time. The long-lasting impact of trauma is expressed as addiction, anxiety, depression, violent behavior, and other forms of PTSD. These realities become an invisible prison that keeps people vulnerable.
Meanwhile, these very same communities are often overlooked when it comes to mental health education, services, and training. As a result, the treatment gap for mental illness further perpetuates the challenges that already exist. This bi-directional vicious cycle between poverty and mental illness keeps families trapped and renders opportunities futile.
We believe that liberation from mental illness is possible, even in the most under-resourced contexts. It needs to be innovative, effective, locally driven, and scalable. We work in communities where few services or resources exist, partnering with local leaders to design mental health solutions that bring compassionate healing for generations to come.
