For the grace God has given my family, I got invested in a Silicon Valley startup that has overlaid technology on top of therapy, making it on-demand accessible for all. MyCuris was built to democratize access to top notch, affordable and convenient mental healthcare through virtual reality psychotherapy, meditation and mindfulness.
I do think Nigeria and indeed Africa will need access to services like this in the military, prisons, companies, churches, mosques, police and homes. But instead of making this a luxury – access to therapists remains for the rich- we are using technology to reduce the marginal cost, and consequently making it affordable.
- Imagine an app that let’s me meditate or relax in scenic and relaxing real world locations.
- Imagine an app that helps me manage stress & overcome my phobias with VR
- Imagine speaking with experienced therapists
Imagine having a room in your office where staff can go in and calm down for a few minutes. With dozens of experienced therapists, available 24/7, a button can also activate a live support if the on-demand sessions are not enough.
At MyCuris, we provide virtual reality sessions prepared in partnership with professional psychologists. These sessions fall under one of these categories of mental health therapy: exposure therapy; cognitive behaviour therapy; stress management, physical rehabilitation and mental health assessment.
We will be launching this in Nigeria and Africa with custom-made MyCuris VR headsets very soon. At the moment we are only serving North American market. We are looking for partners and clients across Africa. Email my team if you are interested.
