Mental health affects every aspect of our lives and plays a crucial role in our ability to function well – emotionally, psychologically, and socially.
At mHub, we focus on developing awareness and core competencies to care for self and others.
We support the work of development partners and civil society organizations in Africa by providing a range of customized programs and services.

Trusted by development partners and civil society organizations in Africa:
20% of adults globally report a mental illness every year.
10% of the global disease burden is caused by mental, neurological, and substance use disorders.
27 workdays are lost every year by a worker suffering from depression.
2030 – the year by which depression will be our most burdensome illness (more so than cancer, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases combined).
10-20 is the number of years that people with severe mental disorders die earlier than the general population.

“In Africa, there are only 1.4 mental health workers per 100,000 people, compared with a global average of 9 per 100,000.”
We’re on a mission to reduce the burden of mental health disorders through bridging gaps in promotion, prevention, and care.
