Lifeomic Collaborated With Preventia To Develop A Mental Health Platform To Help Butler University.
Students may now use a free mobile app to connect with authorized clinicians, therapists, and coaches.
Fremont, CA: Many kids today have a mental illness. Students might get overwhelmed and nervous due to pressures from home, their schoolwork, and their financial duties, making education a challenge. According to studies, one out of every four students has a diagnosable mental disorder, yet 40percent of them do not seek treatment.
LifeOmic, a software firm that uses the cloud, machine learning, and mobile devices to enable precise health and wellbeing solutions, has partnered with Preventia, a virtual-care first lifestyle medicine marketplace, to offer Butler University students additional mental health services.
"College campuses are tight-knit micro-communities with their own unique cultures, needs, and challenges. We put our heads together with some of the brightest minds in Indiana to help the students who are suffering from a higher prevalence of mental health issues," said Brian Schroeder, the CEO, and founder at Preventia. "We created a solution that uses our holistic approach to wellbeing and allows us to wrap our arms around everyone on campus while also addressing the needs of the individual."
With 20percent of college students reporting higher mental health concerns due to the epidemic by 2020, access to expert care is more critical than ever. Butler University is setting the standard for student mental health assistance by proactively offering students with creative and free solutions that emphasize their mental wellbeing. Butler University had also worked hard to satisfy the increasing need for mental health resources since the outbreak began and has turned to two local firms, LifeOmic and Preventia, to develop a tailored solution for its students.
LIFE Extend, LifeOmic's free holistic health and wellness app, has been linked directly with Preventia's licensed provider care network to connect students with therapists and coaches. LIFE Extend provides students with an engaging method to take charge of their health through science-based treatments, instructional content, and links with researchers and physicians. In addition, students now have access to online mental health professionals thanks to the collaboration with Preventia's provider network.
