Combatting the global depression epidemic by mainstreaming the effective, safe and drug-free Sooma Depression Therapy

Project description

Depression treatment goes digital

Some 300 million people suffer from depression worldwide. It is one of the most common mental health disorders, presenting with depressed mood, loss of interest, decreased energy, feelings of guilt or low self-esteem, disturbed sleep and poor concentration. In most cases, it is left untreated, which will become even more problematic as an increase in cases is expected due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The EU-funded SOOMA project will create a digital platform for the treatment of depression. Based on the pioneering Finnish medical technology of a non-invasive, non-drug brain stimulation tool, it will develop a solution for clinics, allowing them to provide relief in a period of two to four weeks for numerous patients. The project is working on making the solution safe to be used at home, revolutionising the field of depression therapy.
