Explore the key learnings from the Mental Health chapter:

  • The pandemic has had both positive and negative impacts on mental health. On a positive note, the perception of mental health has shifted with a reduction in the perceived stigma associated with it. Negatively, the pandemic has exacerbated many mental health issues by creating an environment of isolation and uncertainty, as well as disrupting or halting many traditional forms of in-person mental health services. 

  • Startups are meeting the new demand for services by offering digital solutions including symptom tracking, support groups, self-assessments, and wellness training to offer inclusive resources that are affordable, accessible, and inclusive. 

  • Organizations have begun to play a unique role in promoting comprehensive well-being by incentivizing physical and mental health as a proactive approach to reducing negative health outcomes. 

  • AI and machine learning research is being applied to better assess users mental state, to predict mental health episodes, and offer more effective support via customized therapist feedback.
