Two Mindfulness Meditation Apps for Investor Awareness

There’s an iconic scene in the movie “Animal House” where chaos erupts on the streets during a parade. A young Kevin Bacon, in his film debut, attempts to restore order, by repeatedly saying, “Remain calm. All is well.” He is eventually flattened by a runaway mob. It’s pure Oscar gold. It also represents how a […]

The Psychedelic Therapy Company Treating Mental Health

The results of last month’s elections really got us excited. It will become one of those pivotal periods in history when we can precisely identify the moment that real change began. We’re talking, of course, about all of the drugs that were legalized and decriminalized in November across the United States. The news that states […]

7 Psychedelic Therapy Companies Addressing Mental Health

Remember that time where after sipping a little too much Electric Kool-Aid you ripped the bathroom sink out of the wall as you suffered through a self-inflicted bout of schizophrenia – only to emerge mentally refortified after watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the version with Gene Wilder, of course)?

6 Substance Abuse Apps Helping Us Battle Addictions

We talked before about the Johari window which looks at “how you think other people see you” and compares that to “how people actually see you.” Americans may not realize that foreigners do take notice of how many pills we’re popping over here.

For example, there are noticeable gender differences in the human brain – like hundreds of differences. These differences may help us […]

10 Telepsychiatry Companies For Your Mental Health

It’s the 20th anniversary of perhaps the greatest piece of television ever recorded – The Sopranos. It was such a realistic depiction of the mob that the real mob members thought that the show’s creators were talking to someone actually in the mob. The premise of the show is that the mob boss, Tony Soprano, […]

10 Uses of Artificial Intelligence in Mental Health

Mental illnesses affect 15.5% of the global population. They’re the leading cause of disability-adjusted life years, accounting for 37% of healthy years lost from non-communicable diseases. Even worse, mental health conditions are on the rise, with some estimates putting the costs to the global economy up to $16 trillion between 2010 and 2030 if global healthcare systems […]

What is Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Last year’s trend in Apple’s App Store was the rise of self-care apps, a phenomenon that’s in part fueled by the fact that mental disorders are on the rise. This is not because we’re all becoming a bunch of spineless pansies that can’t cope with the stress of all the first-world problems being thrown at us every […]
