About Amae

We’re on a mission to redefine the standard of care for people living with a severe mental illness

‘Amae’
Pronounced 'Ah-mai'
Amae is a Japanese concept meaning the need to be in good favor with, and the ability to depend on, the people around oneself. It reflects our core belief that a strong support system is essential to build people up, strengthen their will to carry on and even to thrive in life. This mentality applies across our whole company – from the patients we serve to the team we’re building.
