Our CEO and founder of HoloAsh, Yoshua, was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and knows the struggle of everyday life firsthand, as well as the stigma around mental health and discrimination. Often treated as a “trouble child”, scolded for being distracted, disorganized and loud, he was bursting with creativity and was able to focus on one goal, as long as he found it interesting.
He decided to create an app that would provide a safe space for people not only with mental disorders and illnesses but for all of those who are stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, and depressed.
Our society is constructed as a rational system optimized for average people and people who don’t match the picture often feel isolated. Our mission is to create a social environment where people with differences can thrive.
