Value Proposition

The general Ontario health coverage does not include treatment of mild to moderate mental health illnesses such as depression and anxiety. As such, it is difficult, especially for youth, to access timely and affordable mental health resources.

Sonar aims to make counseling for youth aged 15 to 24 more affordable and accessible by offering a user-friendly customizable web-based tool to mental health practitioners, such as psychologists, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and social workers in the private sector.  The web-based medium allows practitioners to facilitate their business through video and voice conferencing, private messaging and online payment options, while simultaneously cutting costs associated with an in-person practice. This technology will thus allow for youth to access quality mental health services through reasonable costs.
