This week (4th-10th Oct) marks Mental Illness Awareness Week 2020 in the US and here at Wise Therapeutics we know that it is now more important than ever to highlight mental health as stress and anxiety levels continue to rise in 2020 since the Coronavirus Pandemic made landfall in March. According to the Health Tracking Poll conducted by Kaiser Family Foundation, 53% of US adults are reporting increased worry and stress having a negative impact on their mental health.
Our mission at Wise Therapeutics is to provide scientifically backed digital therapeutics to help those struggling with stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. During Mental Illness Awareness Week, Wise Therapeutics released the new version of their stress- and anxiety-reducing app, Personal Zen, to Android users. The existing iOS version is now also available for free to make mental wellness tools more available for all.
If we all come together to provide mental health support during these challenging times, we can advance the wellbeing of our loved ones and of society as a whole. We hope Personal Zen can significantly contribute to these efforts.
