ABOUT US

Egal, simply means equality.

 

At Egal Health, we believe mental healthcare should be available to all people. That's why we connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, genderqueer, two-spirit, intersex, and non-binary people with a specialized and progressive provider from our broad network of trusted, qualified, and licensed counselors.

 

Users and counselors use our website and mobile app to facilitate secured messages, voice calls, and video sessions. If required, counseling can be conducted anonymously.

 

Our mission is to provide everyone with easy, affordable, and secure access to professional counseling on-demand.
