SAINT PAUL, Minn., July 13, 2021 (Newswire.com) - YubiHealth has announced the launch of EMPWR 2.0, the second release of an innovative new app designed to assess total wellness and improve mental health, to members of Vail Place, a community-based organization that provides recovery services for adults with severe mental illnesses. The Vail Place community were involved in a unique program to test the app's efficacy with real customers. Improvements in the new release were designed based on feedback from Vail Place members, who participated in a previous test and validation phase.
"As far as we know, this is one of the first efforts to involve actual people with mental illnesses in the design of a mental health app," said Rahul Goyal, CEO and Founder of YubiHealth. "We wanted to see what Vail Place members thought of the tool, but more importantly how they would improve it. Their feedback was invaluable, resulting in a much more relevant and impactful version of the app."
EMPWR 2.0 offers a host of features, including:
- An assessment of the user's total wellness at any point in time.
- Prediction of possible future mental health concerns based on that assessment.
- Personalized recommendations to improve mental health.
"It's remarkable to be involved at the forefront of the movement to improve mental health through better technology," said Vicky Couillard, Executive Director for Vail Place. "I commend the EMPWR developers for coming straight to the source to help design a tool that can truly help individuals in a way that is specific and meaningful to them."
