Mental healthcare is the #1 public health crisis in America. Today, 38M Americans are on antidepressants, while 20M Americans are on anti-anxiety medication. With 46% of Americans experiencing mental illness during their lifetime, US annual spend on mental health treatments and ancillary services has reached $238B. Today’s treatments are far from sufficient.
Enter hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy, which induces a state of intense concentration or focused attention, could clear the way for deeper psychological processing and acceptance. Research shows strong evidence surrounding the potential for hypnosis to treat pain, irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD, and insomnia while an emerging body of study suggests hypnosis might also be applicable for depression, anxiety, smoking cessation, and weight loss.
Might we be able to bring such world positive change to the masses through a digital application or experience? What meditation is today, hypnotherapy might be tomorrow.
