Why is this so important?

Mental disorders are the number 1 burden of disease worldwide (among burden of noncommunicable disorders).

What's happening

  • Mental illnesses in fact are a major cause of disability, economic burden and death worldwide, and level with cardiovascular and circulatory diseases in terms of DALYs.
  • According to the World Health Organisation, by 2020 depression will be the second leading contributor to the global burden of disease across all ages!
  • At the same time there is an overwhelming shortage of professionals to help the people in need.

Our take on it

  • There is strong evidence showing the potential effectiveness of digital technology for preventing and treating mental disorders, also in low-income and middle -income countries.
  • Therefore, we believe that digital technology is one of the solutions that can be applied to mainstream prevention and treatment programs to the people.
  • Additionally, we also believe that playful and delightful user experiences are essential for higher acceptance and adherence, and we want to treat each person according to his/her individual needs: Personalized Care or Precision Health: more preventive, predictive, personalized and precise.

Digital Tech can help!

That is why we are mixing virtual reality, augmented reality, biofeedback technology and games to provide a fully personalised digital coach.

    "The demo was so short, but it still definitely felt like it had an immediate effect on me."

  • The Next Web plays with Stressjam

    Most of us view stress as that wicked ‘thing’ that has a habit of appearing at the wrong place at the wrong time — like any sane person would. However, one Dutch startup begs to differ.
