Who We Are

At Mind-r.ai, the creators of Solace, we are a team of passionate individuals united by a shared mission: to harness the power of technology to advance mental health support. Our diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skillsets empower us to innovate and challenge traditional approaches.

The Team

Our team comprises professionals from various fields, each bringing unique expertise to the table. Whether it’s software development, digital marketing, or AI applications, we each contribute to a collective skill set uniquely positioned to make Solace a transformative solution in mental health support.

Among us is Ricardo Santos da Luz, a seasoned tech entrepreneur with over 17 years in the software development industry. Ricardo’s successful ventures, including Appock, Trippr, and Multside Digital, showcase his extensive industry knowledge and commitment to technological innovation for societal good. His passion for coaching and mentoring cultivates a culture of growth and development within our team.

Many of us have personal or professional experiences highlighting the necessity of accessible mental health support. This shared understanding underscores our approach to product development and customer engagement, helping us craft a solution that resonates with those in need.

Together, we are committed to making mental health support more accessible and effective. We envision a world where the stigma surrounding mental health is diminished, and people have access to the resources they need when they need them. Our journey in realizing this vision is embodied in Solace, our innovative AI-based solution.

Our Mission

At mind-r.ai, we’ve embarked on a journey to democratize access to mental health care. We believe in the power of technology as a tool to break down barriers, erase boundaries, and make therapy universally accessible. We’ve seen the debilitating effects untreated mental health conditions can have on individuals and societies – escalating incarceration rates, economic costs reaching up to 4% of global GDP, and more. Our mission is to change that narrative.

We envision a world where everyone, regardless of their location, language, or economic status, can access the therapeutic support they need. We want to normalize seeking help, reduce stigma, and create a future where prioritizing mental health is the norm, not the exception. Our goal isn’t just about providing a service. It’s about initiating a movement towards better mental health for all.

The Global Impact of Mental Health

Mental health issues profoundly burden our world. They rank among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide, affecting one in four people at some point in their lives[1]. Experts estimate that untreated mental health issues account for 13% of the total global burden of disease[1].

The economic implications are striking. The global economy could lose $16 trillion by 2030 due to mental health issues due to decreased productivity and increased healthcare costs[2]. Individuals with untreated mental health issues often face a reduced quality of life, a higher risk of physical health problems, and increased unemployment rates.

Beyond economic factors, mental health issues can lead to higher levels of violence and crime. Up to 90% of prisoners have experienced mental health issues[3]. These issues also contribute to societal problems like homelessness and broken families.

At mind-r.ai, we are well aware of the broad impacts of mental health issues and are committed to being part of the solution. By democratizing therapy access, we aim to alleviate the mental health burden one individual at a time. Our mission goes beyond healthcare; we strive to create a better, more understanding world.

Our Approach

We mark our path to democratizing therapy with innovation and accessibility. Artificial intelligence powers our strategy, and we harness it to understand and cater to every individual’s needs and circumstances. We build complex algorithms to match user preferences, creating unique and personalized experiences.

We hold strong beliefs in the principle of empathy-driven technology. We design each feature with the user’s needs and experiences to integrate therapy into everyday life. Our approach centres on inclusivity, tailoring our solutions for everyone, regardless of language, location, or socioeconomic status.

As we take every step, our mission to make mental health care universally accessible guides us. Our commitment to this goal shapes our approach, influences our decisions, and propels us towards our vision.
