UBUNTU HEALTH ADVOCATES
Who We Are
Welcome to Ubuntu Health Advocates. We are your premier destination for mental health care and advocacy, as well as patient navigation services. We are here to provide you with access to therapists, health coaches, and advocates who will assist you in accessing better health.
Who we are is wrapped up in our name. The word Ubuntu is derived from the Nguni languages of Southern Africa which asserts, "umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu." This is roughly translated as "a person is a person through other persons." The Xhosa precept "Ubuntu ngumtu ngabanye abantu” has no direct English translation but speaks to the quality of being human. In other words, "I am because we are." We do not live in isolation. We believe this means our nation is healthier when each one of us is healthy.
Appropriate mental health care is your right and we aim to deliver it utilizing a person-centered care model. We are here to walk with you. Welcome to your path to clarity, resolution, and optimum health.

healthcare is hard to navigate
For the lay-men, healthcare is difficult to navigate, let alone with mental health challenges. Having us on your team means you don't have to navigate the healthcare environment alone.
your health is valuable
In healthcare, knowledge is indeed power. The more power you have, the more control you have of your health outcomes. Having us on your team ensures that someone takes your concerns seriously and work to help you attain optimum health.
You are the expert
You know best what it feels like to be at your best. You know your health aspirations. We are here to support you but you are the one who has years of experience on what it means to be you.
