We help make life a personal playground to think, feel and grow.

AnimaSelf is a digital mental health app. We are working to bridge the gap in mental health support by helping you manage your day-to-day ups and downs, preventing emotional deterioration further down the road. Mental health care is difficult to access, time consuming, non-inclusive and stigmatised. Unless you are deemed to be a 'very high risk' to yourself or others, extremely long wait times are commonplace, leaving many people without any form of care
