OUR MISSION IS MAKE IT SIMPLE AND INTUITIVE TO HELP PEOPLE AT RISK REDUCE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH SUICIDAL IDEATION.
There are many applications in the market that address suicide prevention. None of these apps, however, encourage a partnership and communication between therapist and user. They typically link users to local resources that are available for severely depressed and at risk individuals. MINDME goes farther – we support real time conversations using the latest web technologies.
The MINDME approach and app is developed by top experts and provides “pathways”? for people who are chronically depressed and at risk of taking their own lives. Suicide starts with imagining how. MINDME creates a means for internal reflection and diversion from negative to positive thoughts, led by the end-user. But when immediate human intervention is needed, with one touch – a live conversation starts.
The TelePsych Alliance is a collaborative partnership between New York Presbyterian/Cornell Medical College, Burke Medical Research Institute and Interlecta Mobile Innovations.
The Alliance is in the early stages of a proof-of-concept, the MindMe™ platform and application which makes it possible for individuals at risk of depression and suicide to access self-driven treatment or professional help 24/7.
According to the CDC, more than 40,000 Americans will take their own life each year, and this incidence is on the rise. Their conditions are treatable but they are often unable to access the services that would have saved their lives.
The TelePsych solution, MindMe leverages innovative psychotherapy approaches to break the cycle of suicidal thoughts and ideations in vulnerable individuals through a self-guided approach that also includes instant messaging, voice and video conversations with therapists.
The MindMe platform also integrates these evaluations, analyses and treatment strategies with patient video, music and literature libraries as well as accredited e-therapy mental health tools, apps and games
