Spring Health was founded in May, in the peak of spring.
We chose the name "Spring Health" because we wanted it to be "spring" every day. The season of spring evokes hope, newness, and change. We want the feeling of "spring" to be accessible to everyone, no matter who they are, no matter where they are in their journey.
April Koh, CEO, CoFounder
Hopelessness is an all too common part of the mental health journey. I’ve watched loved ones try one thing after another — some provider, some medication, some program. Every time something doesn’t work, it’s hard to muster up the courage and the hope to start all over again.
In five to ten years, mental healthcare is going to look radically different: instead of being a guessing game of trial-and-error, mental healthcare will be precisely and accurately tailored to each individual through data. I started Spring Health because I wanted to build that future — where the hopelessness of guessing is replaced with the hope of data-driven, accurate care.
We need to do a better job of managing mental healthcare, and we need to do it now more than ever. Every year, millions of people need help but don’t know where to go, are concerned about the stigma, or can’t afford the cost. Even when someone does get treatment, providers have no way of knowing which treatment, or what kind of therapy, is most likely to work for them. I founded Spring because mental healthcare shouldn’t be this broken—patients deserve much better.
