How to fix a failing Mental Health System
The future of #MentalHealth services needs to move away from the traditional medical model that is failing families and communities around the world. The failing of this outdated approach is most evident in the harrowing statistics that results in someone committing suicide around the world every 40 seconds.
At #OnTracka, we are simply not satisfied with the action taken to address the failing global mental health epidemic. However, rather than standing on the sidelines, we have a solution that is backed by extremely impressive early data that signals the need for Government, leading mental health organisations and mental health influencers to take us more seriously. Our solution is not based on fitting people into the 157 conditions outlined in the DSM V but rather a way of life or what we call #TheOnTrackaWay.

What is #TheOnTrackaWay
#TheOnTrackaWay recognises the need for psychiatric involvement and the possible prescription of anti-depressants or anti-anxiety drugs. However, more importantly, #TheOnTrackaWay understands, supports and empowers people with evidence-based psychotherapy strategies combined with a direct focus on foundational aspects of health that among other points includes sleep, nutrition, exercise and breath work. Lastly, at the core of our philosophy is the knowledge that we need to be innovative about how we can support people and this is clearly demonstrated through the industry-leading technology that is part of the #OnTracka mobile application.

The Early Results
Throughout five stages of testing, we have seen astonishing results that includes:
1. For over 36 consecutive months, 85% of participants that completed our 1:1 mental health program had returned back to work or were engaged in some kind of vocational option within 12 weeks.
2. 100 patients with chronic illnesses completed a digital program over five weeks. Within that time, we saw a 50% reduction is worry about the future and feelings of isolation. Plus, we saw a 33% improvement in the capacity of participants to cope.
The OnTracka Mobile Application
The OnTracka mobile application is quickly becoming one of the world's leading mental health platforms. While only in it's infancy, the most early stages of development were demonstrating the availability of features and benefits that would soon be in accordance with findings from a study into Mental Health Apps by Monash University in 2016.
