Our Story.

it started with wanting to make an impact in the mental health space.

Personally knowing many people affected by SAD, our co-founders wanted to build a solution better than those currently on the market. After some initial support from McGill University, we moved quickly in collaboration with clinical psychiatrists and psychologists to build the first platform for managing winter mental health.

One in two Canadians have been affected by SAD to some degree and more than 130M people around the world. Hence, we saw this as an opportunity to introduce new technology to an industry that has not seen much innovation, and support this underserved segment of the population.

We're just getting started though. We will stop at nothing to continue delivering on our mission, vision, and promise.
