Mental health has become a serious global problem in the recent past as the number of people struggling with mental health concerns continues to rise. It’s estimated that more than 300 million people struggle with at least one kind of mental health problem around the world. Unfortunately, many people are ashamed of seeking help due to barriers such as stigma and expensive counseling sessions. Luckily, there’s an innovative mental healthcare marketplace designed to help people with mental health concerns to access quality and affordable mental healthcare. I’m talking about Be My Ear designed by Ryan Gunderman and his friend Michael Crocefoglia.
