Cognitive Apps is the creator of the popular Yuru 3-in-1 tool for understanding and managing mental health. The Company recently announced a successful launch of Yuru on Apple‘s App Store. Yuru was developed by a team of licensed psychotherapists as a personal mental health monitor that screens early signs of mental health conditions, such as stress and depression. With a 10 second voice recording Yuru utilizes vocal biomarkers to recognize an individual’s current emotional state and mood. Yuru is considered by many to be an innovative application in the field of psychological assistance, since it allows individuals to track their mental health while providing them with extensive knowledge about human development and the psychology of everyday life.
Cognitive Apps is targeting employee mental health in the next phase of its rollout of Yuru. Major employers like SAP North America, a global enterprise software company are focusing on the trend toward increased employee mental health. SAP recently announced its first-ever Global Mental Health Day, giving all of its more than 100,000 employees a mandatory day off to help them recharge and balance priorities. The digital mental health space was growing rapidly before the COVID-19 pandemic, but stress and anxiety created by the pandemic have increased demand for virtual behavioral health services.
