Mental health startups in Mena
To mark World Mental Health Day, we have mapped the mental health startups in the Middle East and North Africa. Wamda also recently published a report on the state of mental health among entrepreneurs in the region, which found that more than a third of founders rate their mental health as “bad”. The vast majority (55 per cent) of the respondents said that raising investment has caused them the most stress. The pandemic was the second most-cited reason for entrepreneurial stress with 33.7 per cent of all founders facing struggles, a rate identical to those struggling with scaling their business.
