Our Mission Statements

01
Increasing Awareness
To increase global mental health literacy and awareness. According to the WHO, one in four people in the world will be affected by a mental disorder at some point in their lives. It’s important now more than ever to spread awareness and understanding of mental health.
02
Expanding Access
To expand access to mental health resources for underserved populations. Disadvantaged and marginalized communities are disproportionately affected by mental health disorders as a result of reduced access to resources. We want to level the playing field and equalize access to mental health resources regardless of circumstance or socioeconomic status.
03
Empowering Global Communities
To empower global communities by normalizing the discussion of mental health.Mental health is still a taboo topic that’s looked down upon by many cultures around the world - it’s our goal to push mental health to the forefront of societal conversation.
04
Destigmatizing Mental Health
To reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Too often, individuals hesitate to seek help with their mental health in fear of being discriminated against or negatively viewed. We want to change that.

Our Impact

Kakuma Refugee Camp

Home to over 200,000 refugees and asylum seekers, the Kakuma refugee camp is one of the largest UNHCR sites in the world, located in northwest Kenya.
We’re working with the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS), and Step Up for Kakuma (S4K) to deliver cost-free access to Cress Health products and other premium mental wellness resources to the Kakuma refugees. With COVID-19 being an additional stressor on refugee mental wellness, our goal is to give the Kakuma refugees the resources they need to adapt and protect their mental health during these unprecedented times.

Liberian SGBV

We’re working with community partners in Liberia to help young women and girls in the rural Montserrado and Margibi counties affected by sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) receive the mental health resources and support they need.

Nairobi Youth

We’re working with community partners in Nairobi, Kenya to deliver cost-free access to our products and empower the mental health of adolescent urban youth who have suffered from emotional trauma as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
