Our Story

We are on a mission to empower 10 million people suffering from mental health challenges by 2027

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



PASSION Because our mission is personal, we genuinely believe in our work, and we do it with enthusiasm and positivity. We believe that putting our heart into our work is when true creativity comes to life, making almost anything possible.

TRANSPARENCY We believe in openness, accountability and stellar communication. We believe in saying and expressing things as they are, as a foundation for building trust among our employees and partners.

INTEGRITY Integrity is the alignment of values, thoughts, words and actions. Our commitment to integrity means we operate as individuals and as a company from the highest moral principles, acting on our values with consistency and honesty.

COURAGE Doing our work with courage is about taking risks and confronting the uncertain, as well as believing in ourselves and our dreams. Courage is also about doing the right thing, even when it confronts established paradigms.

COMPASSION Through our work, and corporate social responsibility efforts, we are reducing suffering for people with depression and anxiety, empowering them with the tools they need to improve their lives.
