Scalable Problems

Suicide is taboo and people must begin to talk about it


Mental health issues are not diagnosed and treated as “real clinical conditions” 


Suicide programs are tiny, underfunded, and never get scaled


Too many “get out the information” campaigns and not enough action


Mental health professionals are unavailable to those in need in many parts of the US


Foundations and other funding sources are fragmented


Researchers do not collaborate; research grants inefficiently allocated


Privacy and other laws prevent penetration into key areas and institutions


Data is fragmented with insufficient metadata; need clearinghouse


Veteran support is abysmal and embarrassing


Very few start-ups and BigCo’s applying technology to create solutions
