OOTify is a digital health solution that acts as an evidence-based hub to unify relevant mental health resources.

Reasons to Invest

The United States market for mental health services for colleges alone is $75 billion - but the issues extend beyond just universities. OOTify has already started to secure enterprise contracts and has multiple colleges in the sales pipeline.*
OOTify’s patent-pending platform uses personalized clinical AND sub-clinical solutions such as therapy and peer-to-peer support to address a wide range of mental health challenges for a population with disparate needs.
The OOTify team is deeply steeped in the digital mental health space with proven leadership, strong clinical and behavioral grounding, and at-scale, serial technology building. We are a proudly diverse team, driven by personal experiences to address the current issues in mental health.

*Information above is based on internal research done by OOTify



Providing Personalized Mental Health Resources

We are a patent-pending digital hub that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to connect members to mental health resources tailored to their specific needs at that moment. We provide a range of tools from subclinical offerings such as symptom tracking and mental health fluency to clinical solutions such as therapy. 



The mental health crisis is a multi-dimensional problem, so we designed a multi-dimensional solution that understands everyone needs personalized care. OOTify creates a personalized journey for members to get the help they need with a combination of solutions that will actually work for them. 


In the Hindi language, “OOT” or “Uth” means lift-up. The OOTify founding team have dedicated themselves to “lift up” the entire mental healthcare system after losing multiple family members and friends to suicide.


The system is fractured and broken - OOTify solves one of the biggest trial-and-error problems by providing seamless navigation while serving as your own personal digital mental health companion. 

The problem


Mental Health Resources at Universities and Enterprises Are Inadequate

In the US, 1 in 5 college students have contemplated suicide. 63% of college students suffer from anxiety, and 43% report depression. In addition, the pandemic has quadrupled people’s risk of mental health problems.

We believe the current mental health system suffers from fragmentation with many arbitrary resources filling different niche needs. This leads to impersonal products that do not empower individuals with the tools to navigate their own journey to health. 


With such an overwhelming amount of unfiltered options and topics, many individuals suffer from choice paralysis and give up before they get the help they need.


*Information based on internal research when paired with additional statistics (sourcesource)


Our interactions with university leadership teams have identified that colleges are currently spending 80% of their resources on the 20% of students with the most severe mental health issues.* There’s a deep need for ongoing preventative care for that other 80% of students who aren’t getting the help they need.

The solution


Making Mental Health Care Personal

We designed an interactive portal that helps people find the resources they need (e.g. support for grief), ranging from sub-clinical preventative resources to clinical help.



Today, people face a broad range of problems. Everyone falls somewhere on this spectrum of what help they need, but it can be difficult to connect with resources specific to each personal situation.


How We Personalize Our Care


We use our AI to create a mental health profile (or digital phenotype), using personality measures, psychometric assessment data, and ongoing mental health scores. Using this unique, personalized digital phenotype, we recommend evidence-based resources from which the member will most benefit. 



This includes solutions at every level, from low to high severity:


  1. Content and Data - mental health fluency and psychoeducation to manage their own emotions, delivered in an interactive and gamified mental health masterclass 
  2. Campus Solutions - custom recommendations including OOTify’s customized solutions for members who need help that they cannot manage on their own 
  3. Therapy - for members who will benefit from our HIPAA-compliant telehealth system built within our app. Members will be connected to therapists through OOTify’s outside network of private therapists or in-house team 
  4. Emergencies - immediate third-party support and emergency services for members in crisis through crisis text lines or other emergency services 


Currently, our platform is available for free in the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and can be customized for enterprises. We charge a fee for service to connect members to therapists and coaches through our hub. 



First, OOTify will launch our platform specifically for students in partnership with universities. We have already started to transfer this infrastructure in preparation for expansion into other verticals including corporate, non-profits, hospitals, high schools and government spaces, as well as direct-to-consumer markets. Currently we’ve already started securing contracts with these other enterprises.

The Market


A Massive Market Craving Innovation

We see our market as colleges and universities across the country who are committing massive resources to the mental health crisis, but haven’t found an adequate solution yet. 



Most other app-based solutions deliver either digital talk therapy or guided meditation. As far as we know, there is no other hub to deliver outside resources along with intelligent navigation within the platform. It’s not enough. 



Based on internal research, the market for mental health care at universities is valued at $75 billion, with a SAM of approximately $10 billion. Of that, we see our product serving at least $1.3 billion. 


*Information above is based on internal research done by OOTify


Our traction


Promising Clinical Trial Results and Expanding Partnerships

We have successfully completed our independent clinical trial with the support of the Loyola Marymount University psychology department and the University of Southern California. 



Currently, we are in various stages of negotiation with 25 different universities, some of which have led to LOIs.  


In addition, we are developing our own clinical arm in order to provide our members with in-network therapy services to members at little to no cost to them. We have already signed a contract with a large commercial carrier, with another in the works. 



Right now, we are in the final stages of completing our web platform so we can fully launch our product to universities across the country. 

Why Invest


Changing the Way We Confront the Mental Health Crisis


Our mission is to create personalized care built on our evidence-based algorithm that will lead to better outcomes. We believe OOTify is taking a sustainable approach that enables and empowers every individual to choose their own adventure with intelligent guidance on their personal mental health journey. 


As members improve their mental health and wellness, we also provide an incentivized gamification structure to provide utility tokens and eventually will have the ability to create non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and monetize their efforts. This is mental healthcare reimagined.


The OOTify team has already been working on a partnership with ex-Snapchat execs to demonstrate this capability. For example, students are rewarded with customized augmented reality avatar assets as an extrinsic motivator for working on their mental health in our decentralized hub. 

 

To launch their avatar into AR, the students scan a QR code or click on a link like the one provided below and display their digital version in augmented reality. In the future, these assets will move, pose, wear badges, and ultimately connect with other avatars.

 

Click this link on mobile: "OOTify Student Mental Health Avatar," or scan the QR Code below:



These assets will be automatically minted as a NFT and loaded on tradeable marketplaces. The story and community behind these assets given that it's a digital representation of mental health stories and interventions makes them more meaningful and creates a community that’s integral for web3. This is the future of mental health... mental health 3.0


This future we're looking to build would not be possible without the hard work, dedication, and expertise of the entire OOTify team.



Much of our leadership team has had personal experience with friends and families struggling to navigate the difficult and paralyzing landscape of mental healthcare, and we know firsthand that we can and must do better. With our successful clinical trials already demonstrating the effectiveness of personalizing mental health resources, we are ready to get our technology into more people’s hands. 


Join us in building a mental health digital hub that works better for everyone.

Hi All!


We are officially kicking off our crowdfunding campaign on the heels of closing funding from Gaingels, StoneMountain Ventures, and other notable investors.


Happy to also share that we wrapped our Investor Night to thank all of our existing investors for supporting our journey. We hope to have more in-person events like this for our investor base on a regular basis.

We hope to see you all at the next couple of events we are having in Southern California and will be sharing updates here with the same.
