Nestor Velez of Sanomind
Nestor is Founder & CEO of sanoMind, a mental health wellness discovery platform connecting people to audio content created by licensed mental health professionals. After years of battling depression and anxiety as a child, teenager and early 20s, he saw all the problems in the mental health ecosystem. It wasn’t until after his second attempted suicide that he decided he needed to make a change in his life.
After weeks of searching for a therapist and trying to get an appointment, he gave up. The search was so frustrating it made him feel worse! He took to Google and found a therapist with loads of content on depression and anxiety and after listening to all her content he felt she had saved his life.
The problem was that there was not much more content out there like this. That’s where the idea of sanoMind came about!
His mission for sanoMind is to bridge the gap between therapists and the people who need them by educating and sharing advice and techniques through audio content! This is only the beginning, sanoMind will be the go-to product for the entire mental health and wellness life cycle!
