The Story of Recharge Wellness and Our Mission to Transform Mental Health Support.

The Recharge story started off the back of Founders Nick and Femi identifying thousands of people within the system falling between the gaps: the gap between being ‘okay’ in the community and needing hospitalisation. After working many years in the public health sector, we realised people need simpler ways to access effective mental health support, regardless of their stage, situation or status.

Coupling effective technological solutions including software platforms with high quality professionals, we found that having a discreet and tailored approach to skill acquisition along with support from experienced professionals was the most effective way of reduce signs and symptoms of anxiety within our demographic.
our vision

Online Mental Health

Online Mental Health Support VS. Face to Face

One thing COVID-19 has shown us is the importance of being able to connect digitally. As we are moving towards an era of easy to use technology, it’s no surprise that online therapy has joined the bandwagon.

We want things to happen quickly, easily and conveniently, which is why online therapy is a good place to start.

What is online therapy?  

Online therapy is very similar to meeting with a psychologist face to face. The main difference is that with online therapy you now have the option to communicate and get support from the comfort of your own home.

Through this medium you can connect with your psychologist over the phone or through any video conferencing platforms. During this COVID-19 pandemic we have seen the necessity for people to be able to access support remotely due to isolation measures implemented.

Is online therapy effective?

Extensive research has shown us that clinical outcomes did not differ between online therapy and in person therapy.

A Systematic review, ‘About the Effectiveness of Telemental Health’ examined the efficacy of telehealth psychology compared to in-person treatment reports equivalent outcomes for depression, anxiety, physical health issues, addiction, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (Backhaus et al., 2012; Hilty et al., 2013).
