TelePsych Alliance MindMe Platform

The TelePsych Alliance Introduces MindMe platform

TelePsych Alliance MindMe Platform

The TelePsych Alliance, a collaborative partnership between Interlecta Mobile Innovations, New York Presbyterian/Cornell Medical College and Burke Medical Research Institute is responding to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), which states that more than 40,000 Americans will take their own lives this year. MindMe, A real time communications (RTC) solution to combat the problem is going into clinical trials later this summer, tapping into the power of GENBAND Kandy to provide a 24×7 professional lifeline for at risk patients.

MindMe is an application that starts with a foundation of a “companion” for an individual who needs care. It takes the wisdom of the treating therapist and puts it into the hands of the patient. If the user finds they are in distress, he or she can pull up this telemedicine app and start going through a question/response series to assess their emotions and thoughts. The application then moves onto approved strategies for addressing any negative emotions that are being experienced.


While straddling the TeleMedicine, Translation and Community Safety Application Worlds, we feel compelled to say:

Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
