How Can We Improve Mental Health of Students and Young Adults? (Timely MD, Iris Telehealth)
This episode is the second about the evolution of mental health companies. In the previous episode, you could listen to Katie Di Perna Cook – SVP of Partnerships at Headspace Health, and today, we’re continuing the topic with Luke Hejlgl, CEO of TimelyMD, which focuses on the mental health of students in the US, and Michael Maus, CCO of Iris Telehealth, a leading provider of telepsychiatry services for health systems and community health centers across the U.S..
Luke and Michael talked about the state of mental health in the younger population and how the two companies look at digital innovation and digital therapeutics in the mental health space. 9 out of 10 students said they’re dealing with anxiety, said Luke Hejgl, and as mentioned by Michael Maus, 1 out of 4 people that need mental health services actually look for them. So three out of four people needing them do not get help.
