health therapy tailored to fit their needs. Founded by Will Smith and Michael Akindele, mbue Inc. disrupts the health and wellness industry by leveraging technology to reach those with the greatest need, eliminate the barriers they face to accessing care, and deliver premium quality services to its clients. The company is on a mission to make mental therapy inclusive, affordable, and convenient to those who need it most, at a critical historical moment. —
The initiative is particularly timely, considering that millions of people are currently struggling to cope in the current challenging times. Focusing on serving people of color, mbue looks to help clients cope with the new global realities - as the effects of COVID-19, the worst unemployment levels since the Great Depression, and, particularly in the U.S., the racial justice movement, which particularly impacts the African-American community.
“The isolation and lack of social contact, the very necessary social distancing measures that will continue to be in place for some time, the loss of income, exacerbates feelings of loneliness, fear, anxiety, and can trigger depression,” said Will Smith, co-founder of mbue Inc. “In addition, parents have to cope with working from home while supervising or home-schooling children, often in a small space. We are seeing many cases where the stressful context can lead to child abuse and partner abuse.”
Some of the objectives of the mbue team include changing the way people of color perceive mental health therapy, including removing the stigma associated with treatment, rethinking how these underserved groups access mental health services, and expanding the pipeline for minority therapists.
