Our Story

As a native of China, Yuyao Huang saw first-hand how stigma surrounding mental health was devastating his high school community. He always believes one must support the community with actions and increase the conversation around mental health by connecting and sharing societal resources. Inherently curious, he began asking himself why low-cost peer-based mental health services was virtually absent in China. In 2017, he worked with his high school friends, seeking to end the devastating stigma surrounding today’s most prevalent public health crisis. And with that spirit of wonder, the WYMA journey began. 

After years of tinkering and researching, Yuyao teamed up with Cecilia Zhao, a long-time follower of WYMA, and a psychology student with ICF certified coaching skills. Together, they crafted a revolutionary peer-based mental health service “guiding”, designed specifically for the Chinese youth population. The outcome? WYMA becomes China’s leading organization focused on supporting the mental health and emotional well-being of adolescents and young adults with an ongoing mantra to make things work in a better way.
