MentalHappy is the first social network designed to help people of all races, genders and economic statuses improve their emotional wellbeing through positive peer support.

We make it possible for everyone to get the help they deserve without the financial and physical limitations often associated with traditional therapies.

We believe:

  • No one should face life’s hardships alone.
  • Happiness and mental clarity are a right, not a privilege. 
  • It’s impossible to plan when and where you’ll experience tough emotions and need support. 
  • Emotional fitness is a daily commitment without an end date. 
  • Trust relies on privacy and security.
