The solution

VOS.health is a startup based in the Czech Republic that is successfully working to address the challenges in the mental health field and improve mental health care for individuals around the world. The company offers a digital, holistic platform that provides a range of tools and resources for improving mental wellbeing and overall happiness.

The platform offers a range of special features such as the personal wellbeing plan, which is designed to be a pocket companion for nurturing mental health in small, manageable steps. The plan is tailored to the individual, taking into account their personal goals and providing a set of meaningful activities to complete every day. VOS offers a range of time-tested and proven interventions that help individuals boost their mood and maintain their mental health.

In addition, VOS offers access to professional advisors who can talk with individuals about their mental health and provide guidance and support. The app includes features developed by mental health experts and psychologists, as well as a feature that allows users to track their mood and record this in a digital journal.

The uniqueness

One of the unique aspects of VOS is the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to gather data from a variety of sources that enables individuals to see what affects their mood. This can be a useful tool for identifying patterns and finding ways to improve mental health. Through such constant innovation of its product, VOS has already achieved the Apple App of the Day in 2022.

The challenge

Mental health is a growing concern worldwide, with a wide range of challenges facing individuals, families, and communities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2019, one of every eight people, or 970 million people worldwide are living with a mental health disorder, with anxiety and depressive disorders being the most common.

The current challenges in the mental health field include stigma, lack of access to care, and a shortage of trained mental health professionals. By offering a comprehensive and personalised approach to mental health care that is accessible to everyone, VOS is working to address these challenges and improve mental health outcomes for individuals around the world.

The potential

The market in mental health digital solutions is growing rapidly and is expected to reach 69.44 billion by 2030 at 20.3% CAGR during the forecast period 2022 – 2030, according to Market Research Future. This growth is being driven by a number of factors, including increasing awareness of the importance of mental health, the proliferation of smartphone technology and mobile apps, and the growing demand for convenient and accessible mental health care.

Digital solutions have the potential to address many of the challenges that have traditionally hindered the delivery of mental health care, including stigma, lack of access to care, and a shortage of trained mental health professionals. By providing convenient and accessible mental health care, digital solutions can help to bridge the gap between demand and supply and improve mental health outcomes for individuals around the world.

“During a recent period that has been very challenging for me personally, VOS.health has helped me to improve my mental wellbeing and enabled me to see things positively. With my own experience of the effects of VOS.health and my knowledge of the market potential in the wellbeing sector, I was confident that this was a great investment.
