The Founder

Founder & CEO of Aunua Academy
Karina Murray

We are bringing free education to the world about mental health topics, issues and support tools to improve the quality of life for everyone in the world that is impacted by their mental health.

By making the educational resources we provide for free we are lowering barriers to young people getting information about mental health and improving the mental health educational resources available to them.
