Wysa Responds to COVID-19

As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads like wildfire across the world, the psychological toll it is taking on all of us is mounting--anxiety, the stress of social distancing, remote work, quarantines, and even financial concerns as individuals worry about their jobs and savings. Further, burnout among frontline healthcare workers is emerging as a key risk, as healthcare systems struggle to cope.

IiH and Accenture's Open Innovation partners in India are doing some amazing work in this space. @Wysa has a unique, anonymous (digital+human) platform for mental health support at scale. With ~2 million users from 30+ countries, it is a global leader, the #1 digital mental health solution in the #NHS UK, and also the top app recommended for health anxiety and social isolation. 

Wysa has now created free tool packs for dealing with pandemic stress and anxiety. These can be accessed from this link: https://lnkd.in/eRWWxE3.

And to help health workers manage burnout, they have opened up access to all their digital premium content. (This is a great way of saying #thankyou!) https://wysa.io/healthcare @joaggarwal @ramakantvempati #openinnovation #startups #healthinnovation #deeptech #mentalhealth
