On #tech4good and Mind Tech – How Dr. Natanya Wachtel Is Redefining Wellness for GenZ

The surge of mental health problems among adolescents is a worrisome pattern that seems to be gaining momentum. As per the latest study by Mental Health America (MHA), the occurrence of depression in teens doubled between 2009 and 2019.

Moreover, the figures from March to October 2020, when compared to the same duration in 2019, signify an increase of over 30 percent in hospital visits for teenagers suffering from mental health issues. Efforts are needed to improve the mental health of young people.

Dr. Natanya Wachtel, an expert with over 20 years of experience in the field of healthcare and mental/physical wellness, has teamed up with Ivy Mahsciao to support Ivy’s unique solution to help young people struggling with mental health issues. Ivy created a social audio-journal app called evrmore.io. The app uses machine learning and the science of humanistic psychology to help youngsters in their personal development and mental wellness.

Dr. Wachtel recognizes that traditional therapy may not adequately address today’s mental health challenges, particularly among teenagers. Firstly, there is a sudden increase in cases, due to which the demand for mental health services has increased. Secondly, going to a therapist for x number of sessions and then receiving results is a slow process. Thirdly, the stigma attached to it is still a huge barrier for GenZ in getting help concerning mental health. evrmore.io aims to address all these problems. 

evrmore.io provides a wide range of services, including guidance from expert therapists, a supportive community of like-minded people, and a voice recording feature. The app allows users to record their life stories and detect triggers and mood changes and develop strategies to cope with them. The best part is that the app is personalized according to the user’s values, goals, and experiences.

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and The Webby Awards have acknowledged evrmore‘s efforts to create a responsible technology that supports digital mental health. They have recognized evrmore as a leading participant in the  #tech4good movement and acknowledged their contribution to the field of digital mental health.

Dr. Wachtel says that technology has revolutionized many aspects of our lives, including the way we approach mental health. With the help of evrmore and other such digital tools and teletherapy, we can now offer more accessible, affordable, and personalized support to those in need, especially young people who may face barriers to traditional therapy.
