Shezlong expands its operations to South Africa

Shezlong, Egypt’s psychotherapy platform, launched its business in South Africa under the name “Upright” as part of its strategic expansion plan abroad.

Shezlong chose South Africa specifically as a lot of research called attention to its need for mental healthcare services and more specifically, e-mental healthcare. 

Shezlong created a dedicated website and application with the brand identity of Upright. This is just a stepping stone to the platform’s goal to make mental healthcare available and accessible to everyone to enhance the quality of their lives.

“We are proceeding according to a clear strategy and a firm vision towards expansion and growth. We are aiming to make mental wellness a daily routine for every individual in Africa to help build resilient communities, hence, induce a positive impact on the welfare of the society through innovative, accessible, and easy-to-use technologies,” Mohamed Alaa, CEO of Shezlong, said.
