Medibio aims to address the increased demand for online mental health services, through the development of its consumer app, which will be launched and available on Android and iOS platforms in October of 2021. Designed to identify the link between biological markers and mental health conditions, Medibio’s technology empowers individuals to self-screen and better understand their own mental wellness. Medibio’s app and algorithms identify how stress is affecting individuals, and in turn produces stress assessment data to offer cognitive behavioral exercises, educational tools, and goal setting features to help users develop solutions that improve their mental health.
