Better Product LAUNCH: Modern Health

In this episode of Better Product LAUNCH, Christian and Anna sit down with Alyson Watson, CEO at Modern Health, the first preventive mental health solution for employers.

As a collegiate athlete, Alyson noticed there were coaches available for everything from weight training to nutrition and other physical requirements, but none devoted to mental health. Digging deeper, she discovered a need for a proactive and preventative approach to mental wellbeing, inspiring her to launch Modern Health.  

In this conversation, you’ll hear Alyson discuss her mission to make mental healthcare tools accessible to everyone.
