A new startup is developing a recovery system that helps mentally ill people return to their homes

Posted November 01, 2018 05:02:18The tech startup Tks has built an app that helps people recover from the effects of mental illness, using the brain as a way to make sense of their life and their world.

The company, which has been working with a number of mental health organisations, said it wanted to be a tool that could be used by all people suffering from mental illness.

“I think it is really important to think about our mental health, how we can make our world more meaningful and meaningful for others, so that when we’re gone we don’t just be gone, but that we’re alive,” Tks co-founder and chief executive Peter Stearns said.

The Tks app connects people with a network of mental healthcare professionals, who provide them with support and a home to return to if they need to.

“If someone has been in hospital and has a mental illness they can use this app to go back home and we can talk to people who can help them manage their mental health,” Mr Stearnes said.

“If someone is in a very traumatic experience and they have PTSD and they don’t want to go home and think about it for two weeks, we can actually do that and we’ll have someone there to help them, to give them support, to be there for them in that moment.”

Mr Stearn said the app could be a way for people to be able to talk to a mental health professional about their issues, or talk to their GP about their condition, which would help people to get help if they needed it.

“What we’ve found is that it is actually really important for us to be talking to mental health professionals, not just talking to the NHS,” he said.

“We have a huge amount of expertise in mental health and we need to know where it’s coming from.”

“If we can get to know our own mental health as well, we know how to deal with it, we’ll be much more likely to take care of ourselves.”

The app is being developed with funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Tks aims to have its first clinical trial completed in 2019.

Mr Storens said the system had been designed to be as accessible as possible.

“We’ve taken away a lot of the stigma associated with mental illness,” he told news.com.au.

“So we’re trying to get as much information as possible out to people so that they can better decide how they want to proceed.”

Mr Tks will be working with organisations such as the Australian Mental Health Foundation and the Royal Commission into Mental Health and Addiction, and with mental health service providers and mental health charities.
