Mental Health is a topic that is unfortunately seen as quite taboo in most places in modern society. There is a negative stigma associated with receiving mental healthcare, often times people who truly need help are afraid of being judged or seen as lesser because of this stigma. Thus, mental health has become a nearly invisible issue affecting millions around the globe, they suffer in silence without receiving the care they need, potentially spiraling into more severe cases.

This is the issue we have set out to solve with Mentah.

Mental Health is a huge issue but we believe there an opportunity here to make a great positive impact in the lives of many. We envision a solution that is an easy and accessible starting point for anyone's mental healthcare journey.

The Mentah Platform as it exists currently is an MVP (Minimally viable product) produced as a result of the NurseHack4Health hackathon. This is a digital solution which aims to both provide people in need with proven mental healthcare methods as well as relieve some of the pressure on the the over-burdened healthcare industry.

The way we accomplish this is through the use of some non-traditional methods of providing care in a more automated setting and guiding the patients towards the care they might need in their specific circumstances, even if they may not know what kind of care they need.

To achieve this we have developed a tool that users can access without fear of judgement from another individual as the process is automated through either a web or mobile-driven application. The interface provides a unique chatbot experience with a built-in AI driven personality.

This Chatbot applies Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Recursive Neural Networks (RNN) to both understand what issues the patient might be facing in their life, and apply the well-understood gold-standard principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in order to provide the attention they might need in a safe space.

The tool also provides a method for users to find and access additional resources as well as schedule appointments with real-live therapists if and when they feel they are ready and in need of further assistance beyond the scope of the digital platform. The tool can also make gentle suggestions to the user if they are identified as having a more severe or urgent condition and have the confidence/desire to seek out more professional help.
