$10,720.33 Raised


Product is in use by licensed doctors and health professionals across the U.S.

Signed partnership with leading cancer patient recovery program

Raised over $1M in venture funding by top Silicon Valley investors


While there are more and more platforms with therapists, often, it's the same therapists on multiple platforms. That's good, but 46% of therapists say they are overwhelmed and burned out. And there are only 30 licensed therapists for every 100,000 people in the U.S. 

There isn't enough "human power" to meet the tsunami-level demand for mental health services. 

Our innovative health-tech software is a safe and secure platform.

We've designed, built, and launched a HIPAA Compliant mobile app used by health and wellness practitioners across the U.S. to expand mental health services. 


In 2020, we raised money from top Silicon Valley investors. Our mission is to expand mental wellness access to over 1 billion people worldwide. 

the problem

Few Therapist and Crisis Level Demand for Mental Wellness

The U.S. is experiencing a severe shortage of therapists — according to the American Psychological Association (APA), there are only 31.3 licensed psychologists per 100,000 people (source). Many therapists and psychologists have long waitlists, making it harder for new patients to start treatment. And the pandemic has only widened the shortage gap and caused a mental health crisis in both adults and children.

Plus, 60 million people live in rural areas in the United States, where they just simply aren’t within driving distance of any type of mental health facility or office (source).


Demand for virtual mental wellness services is growing 


We’ve tapped into a $200 billion global market with a solution that many business models have simply overlooked— and that is the efficacy of expert-led peer support groups (source).

COVID-19 generated unparalleled demand for virtual mental health care services. But it seems that telehealth may be here to stay. According to McKinsey, overall telehealth use has stabilized at levels 38X higher than before the pandemic (source).

The market for mental health apps is projected to exceed 17.5B by 2030 (source). The larger telemental health market is growing with the CAGR of 33.95% in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028 (source).

THE solution

MentalHappy aims to help health professionals expand access to mental health services

Expert-led peer support groups are a scalable solution that offer accessible, affordable, and culturally sensitive mental health resources.

In Less than 8 Months

We’ve rolled out iOS and Android versions of our apps, on-boarded over 50 health and wellness professionals, and signed a partnership deal with cancer recovery programs supported by leading medical research.

We've seen 12% MoM growth since we launched the peer support product (March 2022 to April 2022).

Our brand is a leading voice in de-stigmatizing mental health

We've also been featured in TechCrunch, Forbes, Nasdaq, Silicon Valley Business Journal, Revolt TV

Welcome back on Startengine Tamar! As an investor, I am so happy that I invested in MentalHappy during the first round. I am so excited to see that MentalHappy has signed a partnership with a leading cancer treatment program to host caregiver and recovery support groups on the platform!! This is awesome news and a big accomplishment! We are living in uncertain times and MentalHappy has provided so much support for the community. If we do not take time to support our mental health, no one else will. Thank you so much for always being transparent and keeping us informed with the frequent updates. I wish you much continued success!

I never received my Wellness Kit from the raise two years ago. Any update on this and also overall updates on the progress of the company since then?

Hi, I'd like to understand two points: 1) What is your customer acquisition cost? 2) We can see in the documents of your last raise that you generated revenue in 2018 and 2019. But the revenues in 2020 and 2021 dropped to 0. What happened during the last two years? Thank you!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.

As a bulletin board platform, SE BB provides a venue for investors to access information about private company offerings and connect with potential sellers. SE BB is distinct and separate from StartEngine Secondary (“SE Secondary”), which is an SEC-registered Alternative Trading System (ATS) operated by SE Primary. SE Secondary facilitates the trading of securities by matching orders between buyers and sellers and facilitating executions of trades on the platform. While a security may be displayed on the bulletin board, these securities will be subject to certain restrictions which may prevent the ability to buy and sell these securities in a timely manner, if at all. Even if a security is qualified to be displayed on the bulletin board, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.
