The emotional resiliency app for adolescents
YouROK is a platform intended to disrupt the mental health industry through prevention by building emotional resiliency among adolescents. More importantly YouROK can help detect the onset of mental health issues to proactively offer targeted treatment exactly at the moment it is most needed. YouROK uses a proprietary algorithm creating our own unique assessment capabilities through deep learning and more frequent touch points. Our market entry product is an app that is part game/part anonymous sharing/part knowledgebase using sentiment analysis to assess kids’ emotional well-being and to keep kids, parents and professionals tuned to the child’s emotional health. Longer term the platform is intended to support parents, therapists and other relevant professionals to deliver therapy through intelligent virtual agents as well as other technology-based interventions.
Mental health care for adolescents is typically mediated by parents and schools. YouROK delivers self-help directly to kids and keeps vital adults in the loop with regard to kids’ experiences and functioning. This engaging app reached kids directly through a device to which they are very closely tied and provides an avenue for them to receive truly anonymous and unbiased support with difficult mental health concerns. YouROK is a handheld gateway to powerful help with kids’ greatest challenges. It simultaneously affords parents and professionals the opportunity to get to know kids in a way that no traditional, paper-and-pencil assessment ever will. more
