Who We Are

Our emotional wellness influences every aspect of our lives.  It also affects our families, friends, communities, and employers.  Behavioral and mental health is connected to educational outcomes, productivity, crime and life expectancy.  Building their own and each others’ emotional wellness is in everyone’s COMMON INTEREST.

We believe that people should have say in the usage and direction of their care and cutting-edge technology–not just huge tech companies and government entities.

To significantly improve people’s emotional wellness, the program needs to collaborate with multiple stakeholders in the current education, healthcare and other community organizations.  The scale of collaboration required is best and most easily undertaken by a nonprofit.

Families’ emotional wellness is a mission that needs to be long-lasting, and this mission is too important and wide-ranging to be driven by business interests.  These are some of the reasons why curaJOY operates as a nonprofit.  When founding curaJOY, I wanted to prevent even myself from “cashing out” or make program decisions based on anything other than how they help families.  My personal goal is to use curaJOY as a vehicle for innovation to equitably share opportunities, acknowledgement and gains to our contributors.

    The good but breaking on the inside

    My parents are wonderful, and our family is harmonious — this is how most people view our family. “You are an independent child who needs no worrying over”, my parents would say about me. My mother would often recall the days after I was born after she commented on this feature; unlike other babies, I…

    Stand Up Against Smothering Anxiety

    I’ve had some anxiety growing up—the stress of exams and ever-growing workload—but never to a point where it prevented me from sleeping or other physical ailments. Actually, that’s me in denial. I have TMJ and acid reflux periodically, but stress and anxiety have become so prevalent in our society that we accept them as the…
