Reimagining care and community for people with serious mental illness

We're rebuilding the payment model and technology to enable community based care so people with serious mental illness (SMI) can enjoy long, healthy, meaningful lives.

Today, our healthcare system is failing people with SMI

Despite $280B in annual healthcare spend for SMI, people with SMI still experience:

  • 20 years reduced life expectancy,  from largely preventable physical health conditions

  • 2x rates of preventable disease

The solution is social, not just medical

There is overwhelming evidence that psychosocial rehabilitation improves outcomes through a focus on community inclusion and the social dimension of living with SMI

Health Outcomes


Reduction in psychiatric symptoms


Reduction in hospitalization


Reduction in cost of care

Social Outcomes


Individuals housed, up from 60%

< 5%



Improvement in time employed

But today, 95% of the 14M adults living with SMI don’t have regular access to psychosocial rehab.
