Mental Health

Mental Health

Together we can connect mind, body and spirit in the pursuit of wellbeing.

The DSM-5 tells us that there are approximately 300 mental disorders. We live in a world where 600 million people suffer from depression and an epidemic of loneliness threatens our elderly population. Advances in mental health research have shown us deeper and more nuanced ways of understanding how our chemistry and environments affect our brains, and our behavior. The Mental Health and Happiness Moonshot reimagines what it means to thrive, feeling whole inside and out. It means using telemedicine and smartphones to expand the reach of mental health services. It means gamifying healthy habits in a community of peers. And it means expanding our definition of happiness in ways that we can’t even fathom yet.
