Problem Statement

The pandemic has inevitably caused a rising amount of stress and other mental wellness issues, exacerbated by the growing emphasis on virtual identity and an online presence. Uncertainty and isolation have resulted in 36% of remote workers in South East Asia dealing with some form of mental wellness issue. Geopolitical instability has contributed to this as well. Many developing countries find it difficult to keep up due to the lack of professionals in these markets. With only 146 million Southeast Asians diagnosed with depression and anxiety, it is clear that many people suffering from these issues are untreated, be it due to lack of access to affordable healthcare or a deep-rooted stigma of mental wellness.


Safe Space aims to create an integrated platform where people can feel comfortable in seeking help for their mental wellness issues.

  • Clinical Therapy: fast and affordable, access to over 170 professionals in 15 languages
