Mind You is an online mental health service that provides assessment and preventive therapies. Moreover, it is a Tech company that focuses on the people that it serves. That means Mind You’s technology is the best in the industry, making Preventative Therapy Sessions as easy to access as Grab or FoodPanda. The team is built up by the best at their chosen skill. The leaders serve to make their staffs work more effectively and efficiently to get the best out of each individual. Generally, Mind You is a mental health service that focuses on the provision of professional mental health preventive programs offered via video conference, phone call or chat.

Mind You was established with the goal of creating happier, healthier and more productive workforces. The eMental Health platform was conceptualised in January 2020 because of the growing need for easier access to preventative mental health care. The development was then fast-tracked and launched due to the demand created by the global pandemic. Hereby, virtual mental healthcare will fulfill the unmet need for clients traditionally underserved by other mental health practitioners. There are some scientific sources stating that online mental healthcare has been shown to be effective for clients who may have difficulty reaching person-to-person appointments with Psychologists during normal business hours, while decreasing the number of missed appointments for in-person therapy.
