Сorporates and insurance companies struggle to face the costs associated with mental health among employees and insured collectives.

For corporates, these costs end up lacerating bottom-lines in the shape of an ever increasing number of employees going on mental health sick leaves. However, ifeel’s data shows how burnout, anxiety and depression are now commonplace among the average employee, and not just prevalent among the higher risk population.

This means that preventing mild cases from deteriorating helps bottom lines but also company cultures. Addressing such tendency is at the core of ifeel’s product, which is unusually fit for attending the full spectrum of mental health needs.

ifeel’s approach serves top executives by helping managers deal with mental health issues through human yet data-first methodologies, and it serves the overall employee population, high-risk or low, in finding a sustainable way out of psychological distress through a suite of therapy and self-help modalities.

For insurance companies, costs come in the form of soaring claims from an escalating demand for mental health care; but also in the shape of low renewal rates from insurees whose needs are not met by a system that takes up to six months to provide care, very often too late or too meager.

Further, the insurance industry loses money by covering only 3% of policy-holders for mental health. ifeel’s data has proven distinctively superior to current means of underwriting, especially for group (employer) plans, thus constituting a huge catalyst for opening up the group insurance market.

The mental health industry needs structural change. In a time when having the right clinical insights on a patient population is critical to preventing, treating and underwriting mental health disorders appropriately, ifeel emerges as a solution that is capable of driving optimal mental health outcomes at scale
