Startup Mevoked: Bridging the Gap Between Mental Health and Technology

 Arun Ravi knows firsthand the importance of early detection for mental health issues. When a close friend of his committed suicide at age 13, Ravi became devoted to making a difference in how mental health issues are treated. Fast forward to 2013 and Mevoked is born. The startup’s analytics platform enables parents to track their children’s activity online and identify signs of risky behavior. A recent participant in the Challenge Cup competition, San Francisco-based Mevoked is now looking to expand by supporting patients who have already been diagnosed. “We see Mevoked eventually becoming a tool of choice for clinicians. We believe that it can be used to increase interactions between clinical visits and help gather data outside of their practice. In the end our mission is to make the greatest impact possible and use our technology to improve lives,” said Ravi.
