Headspace Health announces acquisition of AI-driven mental health and wellness company, Sayana.
“Amidst a rapidly growing landscape of mental health and wellness apps, Sayana has developed a uniquely engaging member experience backed by world-class AI and machine learning algorithms,” said Russell Glass, CEO, Headspace Health. “Sayana's technology, and most importantly, Sayana’s team, will help us meaningfully advance our product and content strategy as we continue to build the world’s most comprehensive mental health and wellbeing platform.”
On the heels of its recent merger between Headspace and Ginger, Headspace Health is creating an integrated experience to tackle the full spectrum of mental health needs - from prevention to clinical care - all from one platform backed by AI and data science. Today, Ginger leverages AI to support its team of behavioral health coaches, therapists and psychiatrists to ensure quality interactions with members, comprehensive tracking of services, and close collaboration among care providers. Headspace harnesses the power of AI to surface and recommend content in order to foster healthy habit formation. With the addition of Sayana, Headspace Health will advance its capability to personalize member experiences - to better understand, support and improve their feelings and mood.
Sayana founder and CEO Sergey Fayfer will join Headspace Health and take on a product leadership role, along with an experienced team of engineers and designers who will further advance the company’s unique and engaging member experiences.
“Since our inception, we’ve been on a mission at Sayana to put self-care in everyone’s pocket,” said Sergey Fayfer, Founder and CEO of Sayana. “We’re thrilled to bring together our technology, engineering and design expertise to help advance Headspace Health’s efforts to democratize high-quality, affordable mental healthcare around the world.”
