About mHub

mHub is a global mental health organization that helps people achieve mental and emotional wellbeing. We are a social purpose business that strives to bridge the gaps in access and quality of mental health services worldwide, with a particular focus on low- and middle-income countries in Africa.

 

mHub Vision:

To contribute to sustainable development by improving the mental health of all.

 

mHub Mission:

To reduce the burden of mental health disorders through bridging gaps in promotion, prevention, and care, by:

  • Destigmatizing mental illnesses;
  • Empowering people to take good self-care and cultivate resilience;
  • Supporting people through curative and non-curative wellbeing interventions;
  • Influencing national health policies by advancing mental health research and advocacy; and
  • Becoming the first-choice organizational wellness services provider in Africa.

 

A message from the mHub Founder:

“I’ve always been an incredibly resilient person and never gave my mental health and wellbeing a second thought. And then came COVID-19… Out of a sudden, our lives had changed dramatically. Our routines were disrupted. We no longer knew what was to come. We faced concerns for our personal health, for our families, and for our livelihoods. And with that came an enormous amount of stress. It was during the darkest hours that I realized that even the most resilient people are seriously vulnerable.

 

Our mental health and wellbeing are incredibly precious; we all need to take proactive care of ourselves. Realizing that many people worldwide lack access to even the most basic quality mental health services, I founded mHub in order to help overcome this enormous challenge.”

Dr. Michael Grosspietsch
Founder & President of mHub

Mental health is one of the most important priorities of our time

People who are not in good mental health can’t connect with others, be productive, solve problems, or contribute meaningfully to society. But mental health is not just about having or not having a mental illness. Well beyond mental illnesses, our mental wellbeing impacts our social, emotional, physical, and cognitive wellbeing.

 

According to a recent Gallup article, the next global health crisis is a mental health pandemic. For the past decade – long before COVID-19, but significantly further accelerated as a result of it -, anger, stress, worry, and sadness have been on the rise around the world. 20% of adults globally report a mental illness every year. And the number of unreported cases is expected to be much higher. Gallup estimates that 7 in 10 people are struggling or suffering. The World Health Organization predicts that, by 2030, mental health will be the biggest crisis that we are facing on the planet.

 

Furthermore, we are in the midst of a burnout pandemic. Chronic stress was rampant even before the COVID-19 pandemic and has now worsened further. Challenges posed by stress and burnout to staff wellbeing, productivity, and teamwork have escalated. The high stress levels of employees have serious consequences for their work life and stress negatively impacts work performance.
