The Problem

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 $150 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.

Our Approach

Personal Zen was created to address this gap. As one of the very few scientifically-validated apps for reducing stress and anxiety, Personal Zen is based on 20 years of brain training and anxiety-reduction research. Using the app just a few minutes a day, a few days week effectively boosts stress resilience and decreases anxiety. Read more about The Science behind Personal Zen here.
