At Mental 360, we know that mental health is a critical component of overall health and wellbeing, and that’s why we’re dedicated to providing on-demand accessible, inclusive, high-quality care to those who need it most. With our holistic approach, we offer mental health support services to at-risk persons in our society.
Our team of skilled professionals offer client-based interventions that are tailored to each person’s unique needs and goals. Through individual and group therapy, peer support, and educational programs, we help our community realise and build their resilience.
Our services are offered virtually or in-person. We run a 24/7 helpline number +254710360360 that is used for crisis interventions and scheduling.
Boma Wellness Clubs in Schools
Mental 360 co-designed (with students) the Boma Wellness Clubs program to create safe spaces for students to learn about mental health and wellbeing in their context.
The objective of the wellness clubs is demystifying and raising awareness on mental health, creating support systems, and to train peer mental health advocates in schools.
Cradle Arts Festival
Art is instrumental in our approach to raise awareness and engage our audience on issues of mental health. It has proven to be a powerful tool in reaching and impacting people across all demographics.
The Cradle Arts Festival is an annual event that celebrates art and creativity in the community while increasing awareness about mental health and wellness. The festival showcases various art forms and provides a platform for young artists to showcase their work.
We take some of the festival material across counties in an effort dubbed TIME TO TALK CARAVAN. Art materials are contextualised and translated to the various regions along language, culture, community needs and experiences performed in community social halls, gatherings i.e. road shows, local radio, church and schools and conversations made around the art pieces in a bid to raise awareness and strengthen social support systems.

Community Wellness Centres
Our community wellness outreach program aims to provide mental health resources and education to underserved communities that lack access to these services. We collaborate closely with grassroots organisations and community leaders to identify areas where mental health support is needed and develop targeted programs to address those needs. Through our community-led Community Wellness Centres, we ensure the sustainability of projects by training community members to run the centres. These centres serve as points of care for Psychological First Aid, peer support group meetings, and social services referrals.
Our goal is to help individuals take control of their mental health, develop help-seeking behaviour, and create safe spaces for themselves and their communities. If you’re interested in learning more about our community wellness centres and how you can get involved, please contact us today.
Boma Wellness App
1 in 4 Kenyans experience mental health challenges but owing to widespread stigma, lack of awareness and inadequate access to mental health care services very few seek or receive the help they need and thus end up suffering marked impairment in social and occupational functioning. The youth are the most vulnerable members of the community and the most affected by mental illness.
Availing services on a digital user led platform such as Boma Wellness creates safe spaces for people to access care and information without the fear of stigma. This allows the user anonymity and autonomy while also improving health seeking behaviour which is a good prognostic factor in cases that might necessitate hospitalisation or specialised long term care. The value of this venture lies in the ability to increase the reach and impact of the organisation’s activities and to decentralise mental health care by championing user-led support groups.
