We envision a world in which all people have the tools they need to overcome mental health challenges.


We are scientists, engineers and experienced entrepreneurs who have come together to make mental health care accessible, engaging and truly outcome-driven. Our mission is more than business, it’s personal. Our founders have lost friends and family members to mental health challenges, and we want to do everything in our power to help people who suffer.


Our Values

1. We are positive, passionate and persistent

2.  Be the change you want to see in the world

3. We are transparent and honest

4. We believe in great customer-centric design
