Project Description

Wellify Teen

When founder Sally Newson’s daughter was 13-years-old, the first “red flags” of mental illness began appearing. The struggle to get her diagnosed and treated correctly spanned three years of misevaluations, unwillingness to diagnose a teen, incorrect therapy and being prescribed a counter-beneficial prescription that made her highly suicidal, a professional mistake that could have cost her daughter’s life.
Throughout this harrowing time, she made a promise to help other parents navigate the behavioral health system by providing actionable tools to make diagnosis and treatment less of a guessing game and more of a data-driven solution for early detection and intervention of mental illness and disorders in teens.
