Polish mental health platform Helping Hand raises €820k

The Warsaw-based healthtech company HH24 has raised about €820,000 (3.9 million zł) in an investment round for its mental health platform Helping Hand. The new shareholders of HH24 include domestic entrepreneurs, financiers, and private investors, MamStartup reports.

  • Founded in 2016, HH24 works on Helping Hand, an app that allows users to receive complete and personalized psychological support. The platform gives users access to verified psychotherapists, expert chats, as well as to videos and interviews with therapists, and a database of professional texts.
  • The companies cooperate with HH24 and use its Helping Hand product to support their employees’ mental health at work. DHL Global Forwarding and MAKRO Cash&Carry are among its B2B clients.

“Acquiring new funds for the development of Helping Hand is proof of investors’ trust and faith in our company’s development. Helping Hand is not only a business venture, but it is also on an important social mission — to make caring for one’s well-being an integral part of their lifestyle,”

Mariusz Kozłowski, co-founder and CEO at HH24, talks about the investment.
  • In the first months of 2022, the company went through an intensive product development. The platform got new features like the Mindfulness zone with a large selection of meditation practices and psychoeducational program for managers. Helping Hand also launched free psychological assistance for all those affected by the Russian war in Ukraine.
  • The new funding will allow the company to keep developing its product and expand its content in Polish, English, and Ukrainian. Helping Hand also plans to expand its team with a Junior Marketing Specialist.
