About Us

Our Vision

To start a movement that reaches over one million people globally by: 

  • Equipping people with a tool to understand and improve their mental health, creating ripple effects as we encourage sharing it with friends, family and colleagues.
  • Encouraging open conversation about mental health and knowledge sharing to reduce stigma
  • Creating a legacy that people are excited and proud to be a part of

About Us

It’s difficult to solve any challenge if it can’t be measured and this is true for mental health. It’s time to take matters into our own hands.

Mental health is solvable as a challenge if we do it together, we use technology, and we measure results. With One Million Lives, changing a whole societal problem is in the palm of each of our hands. It is time we move beyond put our hands up together and, by checking our own mental health, lead the way for others to check theirs too.

By regularly completing a check-in, we’ll be better equipped to understand how we are currently coping and be able to generate real-time, personalized solutions. We’ll be able to start conversations and get support much earlier.

If one million lives are in our reach, they are also in yours. If ever a problem was worth coming together to harness our values, our networks and our technology, it is this. And the time is now.
