Three-quarters of all mental health conditions emerge by the age
of 24, but getting help is expensive and 55% of the nation’s 3,100
counties don’t even have a single practicing psychiatrist,
psychologist or social worker.
That’s why Aaron Robin (32) has founded the “Uber” of mental therapy offering 24/7 on-demand access to licensed professionals. Called iExhale, it’s recently launched in California (coming nationwide soon)
iExhale is an app that you can download right to your iPhone (Android and desktop in the works) with tons of features for anyone who needs a helping hand, or has a hand to lend:
In a recent study teens who were counseled over the phone had just as much success as those who met therapists face-to-face, and research shows that cognitive behavioral therapy, a type of talk therapy, works just as well on the phone or over Skype as with in-person session.
I invited Aaron Robin, the founder of iExhale onto the show to learn more about how technology and our smartphone is ensuring help is always available when we need the most.
