Our Approach to Digital Mental Health

The burden of mental health problems is greater than any other single type of disease – greater than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. Over 60 million Americans suffer from mental health problems annually, and over half of us (150 million people) will experience one of these afflictions in our lifetime. Every year in the U.S., we spend almost $300 billion on emotional and psychological health. Worldwide costs are in the trillions.

Yet, this is just the tip of the iceberg – those who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction don’t seek help most of the time because treatments are hard to access, expensive, and a huge time burden. Many more of us feel that we will be stigmatized if we express psychological distress.

To address this gap, we designed Personal Zen. Our vision is to spark a digital mental health revolution in which the best of science and technology are harnessed for well-being. Personal Zen is one of a select few scientifically-validated apps for reducing stress and anxiety. With thousands of mental wellness apps on the market, <1% include evidence-based techniques. Personal Zen is based on 20 years of brain training and anxiety-reduction research. Personal Zen effectively boosts stress resilience and decreases anxiety when used only a few minutes a day, a few days a week.

Just a Few Minutes Each Day
