  1. I in 5 people are said to “have a mental illness” label. 1 in 6 people are reported, by one study, at least, to be on psychiatric drugs. Do we really need to “bring therapy to a wider population”!? I don’t think so. You can’t sell “Mental Health apps”, like therapy, like drugs, etc., without first having sold “mental illness”. “Mental health”, it seems, is not so lucrative as is “mental health” treatment of one variety or another.
