Health & Fitness:Mental Health
What’s Going On In The Mental Health Start-Up Space with Chris Larson From Behavioral Health Business.
I'll be honest, this episode started out about layoffs, specifically mine, and wanting to dig a little deeper into the current state of the mental health start-up landscape and why we're seeing something of a harsh re-adjustment in recent months.
But, it proved to be a way more interesting and uplifting chat with journalist Chris Larson from Behavioral Health business on the wider mental health business landscape in the US. We dig into the explosion of VC funding into mental health start-ups in recent years, what fueled this, and ultimately what has caused the recent blip.
We also dig into the psychedelic side of the business in particular and look at some of the challenges specifically with Ketamine based start-ups right now.
Most importantly we end things on a positive note with a reminder that despite these challenges the future looks bright for many of these companies who are offering much needed services to folks that need mental health help.
