— Our Story
Wellness Psychological Services (Wellness) is the brainchild of young psychologists who found that the biggest barrier to Ugandan’s help-seeking is stigma and a lack of knowledge about mental health.
As a result, Wellness seeks to increase our community’s understanding of mental health especially mental health literacy and mental health help-seeking behaviour. Our hope is to be part of an East Africa that is more inclusive and better able to support people’s mental health and wellbeing.
