Company Seeks to Help Participants Realize their Total Brain Capacity and Confidentially Screen for Common Mental Conditions
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Total Brain, provider of the world’s first brain performance monitoring and training platform, announced today that, in honor of the World Mental Health Day on October 10, it will offer one-year complimentary access to its digital service.
Powered by a scientifically validated digital brain assessment and by the largest standardized neuroscientific database in the world, Total Brain helps individuals assess, rank, screen and train their emotion, feeling, cognition and self-control capacities.
In today’s world, our brains are hacked. For most of us, 24/7 news feeds, emails, texts and social media make it harder to feel the right emotions, to focus on tasks, to think straight and to develop meaningful social connections. For others, mental conditions like depression and anxiety emerge with 50%1 going undiagnosed or untreated due to a lack of awareness, stigmatization and lack of context for effective screening.
By making brain performance its primary user goal, Total Brain creates brain awareness and provides appropriate context (human performance vs. diseases) for effective screening and referrals at scale for depression, general and social anxiety, ADHD, addiction, PTSD and sleep apnea. The application also provides everyone self-directed digital brain training tailored to individual strengths and weaknesses. Training includes digital brain, breathing and meditation exercises that have proven effective in strengthening brain capacities.
This free promotion will kick off at Give an Hour’s Global Summit on Mental Health Culture Change 2018 in London on October 10 and be valid for one week, through October 17. Anyone seeking to take advantage of this offer can visit www.totalbrain.com/changementalhealth and register for their free, one-year trial.
Preeminent mental health advocate, clinical psychologist and founder of Give an Hour, Barbara Van Dahlen, Ph. D said,”We are proud that Total Brain has joined Give an Hour as a sponsor at this year’s Global Summit on Mental Health Culture Change and we are grateful for the important gift they are offering to everyone on World Mental Health Day! Total Brain’s approach focuses on giving each of us information about ourselves – so that we can understand our strengths, our challenges – and seek help when needed. This is culture change in action!”
“World Mental Health Day calls for worldwide attention on the fact that most of us function sub-optimally in this ‘always-on’ society. Mental conditions are just another temporary cause of human performance impairment. Functioning at optimum, at-home and at-work, is a universal problem that calls for a universal conversation and solution,” said Louis Gagnon, CEO of Total Brain. “We are deeply committed to provide that solution and help people lead happier, more connected and fulfilling lives.”
Louis Gagnon will speak on a panel with other thought leaders and policy makers at the 2018 Global Summit on Mental Health Culture Change in London. The session called “The Role of Technology in Changing Culture“ will be live webcast on October 11 here.
