JAAQ was founded by Danny Gray with a vision to ‘change the world of mental health, one question at a time’. As a child, Danny was bullied because of his appearance, which really impacted him. He started obsessing about the way he looked, so much so that he developed Body Dysmorphic Disorder. He understands that when someone is experiencing a mental health problem, having access to suitable sources of information quickly and simply is crucial. Once you understand it, you can start to deal with it. When he came across the technology that powers JAAQ, Danny immediately saw its potential. And during a restless night’s sleep, the idea for JAAQ was born. He then focused on making JAAQ a reality; with the aim to provide information to people that need it as soon as they need it.
