A New Treatment Process

THE PROBLEM

For many, the current process for treating depression and anxiety is insufficient and ineffective. It is filled with obstacles and gaps for patients, families, friends, employers, and healthcare providers.

THE ENCUMBERED LIFE:

Fights Alone.

Millions are living with debilitating depression and anxiety, seeking treatment with inadequate assistance. 

THE ENCUMBERED LIFE:

Lacks Individualized Care.

When sufferers do need help, treatment is often ineffective because of generalized care that doesn't fit individual needs.

THE ENCUMBERED LIFE:

Is Disjointed.

Treatment specialists do not have the opportunity or the infrastructure to collaborate when it comes to their patient's individual needs. 

THE ENCUMBERED LIFE:

Is Marked with Stigma.

Not everyone recognizes the legitimate challenges that depression and anxiety sufferers face. Many feel marked with disgrace and shame. 

THE ENCUMBERED LIFE:

Burdens All of Us.

Because mental health  burdens are social, financial, and personal, the depression and anxiety epidemic affects everyone. Even if you or someone you love doesn't suffer from depression and anxiety, you still shoulder a personal cost.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

          - R. Buckminster Fuller
