Inward is a female-focused mental wellness platform that leverages peer to peer support to disrupt the traditional therapy model with software. We employ a data-driven and clinically backed multi-modal approach to self-managed care, including providing a safe space for women to engage in a supportive community, access evidence-based programs and guided therapeutic conversations. Our virtual therapeutic solution integrates psychoanalytical content in an interactive peer-to-peer experience. Female focused topics we tackle include depression, self-esteem, limiting beliefs, imposter syndrome, navigating relationships. Our product lowers stigma barrier and makes access to effective treatment scalable, affordable, community based and fun. We believe that shared identity and experiences promote deep connection which accelerates the collective healing process.
