Ridgeites’ new mental fitness app seeks to put professionals in your pocket

A brother and sister duo from Bay Ridge, two of five founders of a wellness tech start-up, are planning to a launch a new app that could revolutionize the way you view wellness.

KindMind, a mental fitness app that will allow users to access mental health care in their pajamas, is looking for supporters to fund the innovative project via Kickstarter .

“We truly want to change the system, and change the way people see mental health,” Ridge resident Mariella Sypa‎, one of the start-up’s founding members, writes. “We have 45 days to raise our goal of $27,800 which could get our app from prototype, to ready to launch.”

According to its Kickstarter page, the app will allow users to track and improve their mental wellness in a fun and easy way–by framing it as “mental fitness.”

“It puts a therapist right in your pocket, and gives you the tools to perform your best all the time,” the Kickstarter description reads. “KindMind doesn’t just keep clients going back to their therapists; it also connects them with new therapists who fit their specific needs. It becomes so much easier to get to that next session when it’s just a tap away.”
