Oqea was created by a group of senior mental health professionals who saw the need for change. We could see how the current system is detached and struggles to serve the very people it has been built to help. In realising things could be done a better way, we were inspired to use technology to enhance the wellbeing of people all over the world. That's why we created Oqea. We believe high quality support should not be limited by the complexity of the current health system and it should be available to everyone, everywhere.
