Our mission is to reach the 1 in 5 people on this planet that suffer from depression and anxiety every year, but where the majority never gets help due to stigma, high costs and waiting lists.

Inuka is a managed marketplace for evidence-based life coaching. We empower community heroes with a proven method as life coaches and connect them via our online chat-platform with people in mental distress. The proven method is developed by co-founder Dr. Chibanda, a famous psychiatrist who has proven you can train non-professionals to treat depression and anxiety in a published clinical trial (JAMA, 2017). He currently treats >10.000 people/month and a TED talk >1mln views. Inuka is the first to make this available to the world via a digital coaching platform.

On the client app you can do a self-test, get matched with a certified lifecoach to do chat-sessions to identify and tackle your problems. The coaches are supervised by licensed therapists with a build-in quality control system.
