Technology is integrated into almost every aspect of our lives, be it ordering food, commuting or healthcare. However, we are yet to observe any major breakthroughs using tech in the field of mental health care. Psylaris is a startup based out of Maastricht, Netherlands, which aims to change that by infusing the mental healthcare sector with the latest technology on offer.
Psylaris’ services and products make use of Virtual Reality (VR) to enable therapists to treat patients in a more convenient and safer manner. In an interaction with the company’s CEO, Mike Verhiel, we find how the tech works, what’s next for it in terms of innovation, what challenges it faced while starting out and more.
