About Us

MyTherapist.ng is a mental healthcare startup that connects you to vetted therapists as well as resources for your emotional needs in Nigeria. MyTherapist.ng was founded by young Nigerian entrepreneurs with the goal of providing affordable, accessible, and quality mental health care to everyone who needs it. Our vision is to make therapy available everywhere and as easy as booking an Uber or ordering from Amazon Prime!

The problem

woman who needs therapy

Mental health in Africa is a topic that is often left unspoken, and people are often hesitant to seek help and is definitely an important issue that deserves more attention. 

According to the World Health Organization, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds.

What we're doing

MyTherapist.ng provides easy access to therapists who can offer support and resources on mental health topics. Our app also includes an array of tools available to help people of various age groups cultivate healthier mental health habits.

Through these and more, we’re playing our part to help achieve Goal 3 of the UN SDGs.

Meet the hands working behind the scenes to make this goal a reality.
