LetsConnectProject platform was designed by a mental health patient.
Sophia was an active teacher who taught business management and entrepreneurship in university. In 2014, after experiencing several losses, Sophia fell into a severe depression bout that lasted for months.
She got help from an experienced psychiatrist and got diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and Inattentive ADHD. She was an outpatient for over a year while she was still working: teaching and mentoring her students. She also did counseling twice a month, which helped her tremendously.
One day, one of Sophia’s students had a mental break down in front of her during a business mentoring session, telling Sophia that her best friend just died of suicide. Sophia knew she had to do something.
Sophia saw an unmet need in the world, which is: easy access to affordable, good quality mental health support.
Sophia started designing LetsConnectProject Platform in 2019. With the help of her partner and her team of programmers, Sophia’s innovative design was turned into a reality.
We are an international team that works remotely together. LetsConnectProject is a social venture startup in the telehealth domain. Our seed funding was kindly donated by donors from Canada, Australia, and the USA.
Sophia got her graduate degree in business management from Capilano University. She is passionate about technology and how it can enhance people's lives. She loves coffee.
Kylah got her honours degree in psychology at the University of South Africa. She is a trained lay counsellor. She believes in the African philosophy 'Ubuntu' which emphasises coming together as a community to help one another through compassion and kindness.
