With the world on the brink of a mental health crisis due to the COVID-19 outbreak and soaring global unemployment rates, Synctuition, the most advanced mindfulness, and mind relaxation app announced that platform will be made free to people in 14 countries. The app has now been made available for free from the now until 31st July 2020 to the United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Canada, The Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Estonia, Dubai, Israel, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
Led by veteran tech leaders from Estonia, Synctuition offers free access to the app at a crucial time as the COVID-19 pandemic along with other crises, such as increasing unrest, turmoil and global protests, impact the mental health of people worldwide, with federal agencies and experts warning of a wave of pandemic PTSD and other mental health issues on the rise. The WHO has warned that in public mental health terms, the main psychological impact to date is elevated rates of stress or anxiety. And as people around the world endure the lasting impact of the pandemic – especially quarantine and its effects on many people’s usual activities, routines or livelihoods – levels of loneliness, aggression, depression, harmful alcohol, and drug use, and self-harm or suicidal behaviour are also expected to rise. “We would like to use our platform to build on to keep people feeling safe, supported, and happy. We want to make a difference and provide hope to those seeking a bit of peace, release, and mindfulness in their daily lives,” said Michael Burich, COO, and Co-founder of Synctuition.
“By making Synctuition a completely free, no-strings-attached resource for people, we are giving them a safe space in which to release anxieties and let their spirits soar above all of the daily deluge of heavy news. Studies have shown the positive impact that mindful practices can have on helping combat stress and anxiety, allowing people to focus on the present while increasing patience, tolerance, and imagination.
Developed over 10 years, Synctuition is the world’s most advanced audio relaxation program. Synctuition has already reached 4 million users. Whilst being entirely self-funded, the platform has become the third biggest mindfulness app in the US since launching 18 months ago.
