According to a December 03, 2020 article in The Harvard Business Review, the U.S. has long suffered from a severe shortage of mental health care services. The pandemic has put a spotlight on the effectiveness and wide availability of digital and virtual mental health care, and by doing so might have thrown a lifeline to our mental health system. The article went on to say sixty percent of young people with major depression received no mental health treatment in 2017-2018, and one quarter of adults with mental illness reported an unmet need for treatment. In the U.S., 55% of counties have no psychiatrist, psychologist or social worker, and 70% don’t have a single child psychiatrist. Queues for substance abuse care can be weeks long; 70% of those who needed substance use treatment in 2017 did not receive it. To make it worse, many practices have closed or reduced their capacity in response to pandemic health concerns. As a result, mental health vendors are combining digital tools and virtual care to create a robust ecosystem for end-to-end patient care, including steering patients to in-person care when needed. This combination of tools provides the mental health care system with scalable solutions and increased flexibility while improving access and convenience for consumers. Because of these benefits, the majority of employer-sponsored health plans now offer virtual and digital options for mental health care.i
Dr. Manideep Gopishetty, CEO and Co-founder of Cognitive Apps, said, “The Yuru team is very pleased to see our numbers climb following this initial introduction of our mental health app. We believed our messaging was going to result in a strong source of new users due to the enormity of the market. It is the right time to aggressively market our online mental health platform. These strong early results are encouraging.”
Robert Grinberg, CEO and President of Life Clips, Inc. said, "I would like to congratulate Dr. Gopishetty and his team on a successful rollout of Yuru. Yuru is a true mental health companion that warns you if it notices that you need professional guidance from a therapist. It nudges you to pay attention to your mental state if there is a change in your stress level. By analyzing vocal biomarkers received from your voice, Yuru reports a spectrum of your current emotions, your daily mood, and the overall status of your mental health. We look forward to expanding the Yuru platform, as well as making future acquisitions that are in line with our business plan."
About Life Clips, Inc.
Life Clips is the parent company of Cognitive Apps Software Solutions Inc. and distributes single-use and cordless batteries under the Mobeego brand for use with cellular phones and other mobile devices. Cognitive Apps is an AI-Powered mental health analytics platform that empowers businesses to measure, understand, and improve mental well-being of their employees, patients and customers. Drug development for mental health disorders and other cognitive impairments is hampered by the inability to identify at risk groups before the onset of clinically significant symptoms, as well as continuous assessments on the progress made by the participants. Cognitive Apps is addressing this problem by pioneering a speech-based AI technology which could help accurately predict risk for various types of depression and mood and anxiety-based disorders years before a clinical diagnosis is obtained. Our technology can help detect and monitor subtle changes in mental state by assessing individuals more frequently and more objectively than the assessments used today.
