We remove barriers to mental health care such as stigma, cost, and accessibility for patients while scaling up today's overburdened providers. Patients can text into a moderated support group anonymously from anywhere, at any time. Providers manage this access with AI algorithms that run on patient texts, and automatically track patients, detect complications, and focus provider efforts in real time. Together, this combines the clinical efficacy of therapy with the persistence of peer support.
