S7: #063: Dale Beermann of Pacifica Takes on Mental Health

35 minutes

Mental Health Awareness Month is observed in the US during May. In the UK, Mental Health Awareness Week is observed May 14-20, 2018. To do our part to raise awareness of mental health, I spoke to a guest that can share a real example, a success story, of how digital tools can be applied in this area.

In this episode, I spoke with Dale Beermann. He’s one of the founders of the company behind the award-winning app called Pacifica. He’s here to share some of what they’ve learned as they’ve brought their solution to market, and discuss the areas of need, and the areas where they’re having the greatest impact. He tells us how both consumers and professionals can use their solution – their app is free to download and free to use, so take a minute open your smartphone, or even a browser window on your computer, download Pacifica and give it a try.
