What is Mindshine?

Mindshine is a digital mental health platform that helps you train your mind like a muscle, and feel better. Our 3-pillared approach will help you with powerful habit forming exercises, a peer-to-peer support community, and the education necessary to understand the science and principles behind the methods via audio, video and written articles.

Why do we do it?

There are over 1 billion people in the world with untreated mental health issues. Professional help can be inaccessible, inflexible, expensive, and daunting, and we believe a simple, accessible and fun solution can measurably improve the lives of all of them.

Who do we help?

We help people suffering from light to moderate mental health problems. The most common issues include Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Poor self-esteem or low confidence, and low motivation.

Unlike other self-service platforms, Mindshine offers a holistic approach. This means there is a variety of sessions to choose from to suit your preferences.

What's a startup without a geeky graphic designer? That's why Dani is here! From ads and flyers to mo-graphs and illustrations for the app, she's the hand behind it all. She's a very relaxed person who likes to paint miniatures, and as you may guess, play video games.

Additionally, Dr. Marsha’s background working with children and their attachment strategies make her adept at providing parent coaching and heavily influences her work with adults.

Numbers, weird abbreviations and a hint of creativity - that’s Nina’s daily business as Mindshines’ Performance Marketing Manager. Day in and day out, she thinks about how to bring Mindshines’ amazing mission to the world. Nina's biggest passion is traveling.
