1 in 4 people worldwide suffer from mental health issues every year.
More than 50% never get the NEEDED support because of stigma and high costs.
We want to lower the barriers to give and find effective mental support.
With this mission, Inuka looks for ways and partnerships to reduce stigma around mental health, make services accessible and reach out to those in situations of stress, disconnection or grief.
We have two routes to achieve this mission.
Our first route is to offer commercial coaching services and burnout brevention to companies and individuals in need via our social enterprises in Europe and Africa.
Our second route is the Inuka Foundation which owns 10% of Inuka and has the mission to make Inuka services available for free for the most vulnerable. The focus of the foundation is on reserach and scaling up our partner organization the Friendship Bench in Zimbabwe.
Whichever route you want to join us, we hope to connect to fellow champions and voyagers on our journey towards mental health for all!
The simple means of connection that inspired Inuka.
Partners & champions.
Entrepreneurs, creators and doers, our team members are located across the globe and bring varied skills and interests to rally around the cause of mental health

Although this service is designed to help you cope with a range of issues you face in life, Inuka is not a medical service. If you feel you are in crisis, or may hurt yourself or others, you should seek professional help. You can also find resources for professional help here.
