Based on decades of scientific research in cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness and neuroscience, Happify Health’s digital intervention platform provides more than 60 programs and over 2,500 activities that use evidence-based science, unparalleled engagement strategies, software and gamification to improve access, deliver emotional health outcomes and significantly reduce costs. Happify Health’s programs were created in conjunction and collaboration with leading scientific experts in each domain of life.
With this investment, Happify will increase infrastructure support for its growing business, continue research in real-world interventions, and continue to enhance and expand the Happify platform.
