High-quality,
low-cost
behavioral health care for all ✌️
We know first-hand

as patients,

🗓️  it’s rare to find therapists with availability

🏥  it’s rarer to find anyone who accepts insurance

💸  therapy is expensive both in and out-of-network

😶‍🌫️  it’s hard to keep up between sessions

🏃  it's tough to get away from work

🌚  mental health apps are shady and overhyped

as providers,

🧑🏽‍🤝‍🧑🏽  you can’t always be there for clients

📝  you can’t make clients do their homework

🗂️  there’s not enough time in the week to eat, let alone for admin work

🔥  you’re burned out, but your waitlist is still insane

🔧  you need tools, but not sure what will actually help

🌚  mental health apps are shady and overhyped

what our users said about our clinical trial for sleepbot

“It was monumentally helpful to become more aware of my feelings while preparing to sleep, trying to stay asleep, and having the most meaningful night’s rest. It was impressive how quickly my thought-process prior to bedtime changed. I am very grateful for the SMS Intervention.

“The daily tips were relevant and helpful, and I would recommend it to my friends/family.”

“Noticed I began relying on it to remind me of the various behaviors. Once I got used to it, I liked it.”

“It was fun!!”
