Our mission: 1 in 5 Americans and 450 million people worldwide suffer from a mental health condition such as chronic stress, anxiety, or depression. Yet over 70% never seek professional help, and the 30% who do seek treatment often receive it late. Happify Health is helping solve this global challenge by empowering people to live their fullest lives through meaningful behavior change. At Happify Health, we are committed to giving people access to the care they need sooner. We’ve designed everything on our software-based platform to uniquely address both the needs of the 30% who seek care as well as the barriers for the 70% who are left untreated in most care models. What truly sets us apart, however, is our ability to reach those who may not even be aware they are struggling. Happify’s self-care platform supports entire populations by going beneath the surface to address the unseen and unmet needs of employees, connecting them to the right level of care at the right time. Mental health is complicated, but getting support doesn’t have to be—we make it easy for employees to access care by providing engaging, evidence-based tools available 24/7 at their fingertips.
Our history: Happify was founded in 2012 by scientists, researchers, healthcare clinicians, and digital and gaming experts passionate about creating new approaches to help people improve their mental health and well-being. Over the past 8 years, we have evolved into a leader in mental health technology and digital therapeutics, with a broad range of clients ranging from global Fortune 50 companies to large national health insurers. After significant success in the direct to consumer market, we started our enterprise division, Happify Health, in 2016 to scale and globalize our solution for health plans and large employers. We began partnering with innovative organizations who recognized the benefits of Happify in eliminating the stigma around mental health, solving for access and scalability, and reducing lost productivity cost, burnout, and turnover, resulting in a more engaged and positive workforce. In 2018, Happify DTx was founded to facilitate partnerships with pharmaceutical companies to develop FDA-cleared, stand-alone, and prescribed digital therapies for specific medical conditions that are comorbid with anxiety and depression.
