There I was, wearing jeans and a college shirt instead of my usual business outfit. Someone of my team asked about my future plans. I said first I’ll have to learn my children’s names again. I was suffering from burnout and had decided to leave my job that I was extremely enthusiastic about. In reality my future was a blank scary canvas, yet I saw no other option to get out of what had turned into a vicious circle. 

Mervi Lamminen

Matron, CEO, Auntie Solutions

The year was 2015. Mervi was frustrated, as she found out she wasn’t the only one facing a situation and realising finding help was slow, difficult and usually badly delayed. The seeds for Auntie were planted.


The first idea of Auntie was a mobile game. Pretty soon the team realised that mental well-being cannot thrive without human touch. The first mental well-being professionals joined Auntie in 2016. Today there are over 100 Auntie professionals serving people in 20 languages. Auntie serves dozens of organisations, varying from small IT companies to large public sector organisations and global corporations.


More and more organisations are realising that happy and well balanced employees are more positive and more productive. Auntie has grown with triple-digit numbers during the past years and plans to stay on that path. Currently focus is on strengthening our international precense and further developing our digital services.
