OUR STORY

Existology was founded in May 2020 by Anisha and Aryamaan as a result of the disillusionment arising from a lack of resources for their own mental health journeys as well as supporting each other through their mental illnesses. 


The vast and scattered fragments of information were overwhelming to steer through and often left them confused due to their contradictory nature. On further delving into the issues surrounding the mental healthcare space, they found a severe lack of open discussion about the topic due to the age-old stigmatization of mental health. They were left bewildered at the state of affairs in this matter not just in India but all over the world.


This culminated in the birth of a platform to start essential yet largely overlooked conversations about mental health among all ages. With Existology’s efforts, we ultimately aim to destigmatize mental health in our society by creating changes in an individual's direct and indirect environment.
