SAN ANTONIO and GREENVILLE, N.C., May 16, 2017 — eMindLog™, a digital platform for self-measuring stress, anxiety and depression, has won Frost & Sullivan’s 2017 New Product Innovation Award for best practices in the behavioral health smartphone apps industry.
In selecting eMindLog™ for the award, Frost & Sullivan said, “Overall, eMindLog™ has the ability to lead in this market based not only on the scientific superiority of its app over competitors’, but also considering that it is the first to merge clinical psychology and neuroscience, granting it the first-mover advantage.”
Here’s the thing about having a mental illness – you can’t always see it or hear it if you’re on the outside. Unlike other illnesses like the flu or cancer where the symptoms show up visually or you can hear it in the voice of someone who has been up coughing all night, you can’t always see or hear that someone is experiencing depression or anxiety. And despite the misconception that people who are depressed don’t get out of bed or can’t find the energy to participate in their lives consistently, the majority of people experiencing depression are functioning members of society. So what do you do when you’re too “functional” to be taken seriously for experiencing depression or anxiety?
