How the Seed was Planted
Habitual Roots began after two engineering students saw a gap in the way our society was supporting those with mental and emotional needs.
Our founders, Justin Ervin and Kevin Wong, felt disconnected and unsupported throughout their educational, professional, and societal experiences when it came to their mental and emotional health.
As two curious engineers, they realized that the habits they developed to cope with emotions had an enormous effect on their personal lives and overall well-being. They began to question the common routines we were developing as adults, the habits we were building, and if they were beneficial for our mental health. After doing a little digging, turns out they were on to something...

Through this discovery, and their lived experiences, Justin and Kevin were led to create Habitual Roots as a nonprofit organization.
They built what they felt was needed most – a positive community for those looking to live a heathy and balanced lifestyle; a community centered around wellness and affordable access to practices that combat mental illness and its symptoms.
