Our Approach

curaJOY supports families’ social and mental health by providing practical and collaborative solutions that are proactive and community-driven. Our program design and evaluation processes involve clinicians, youth, educators, researchers, and parents to ensure that we address the most pressing issues affecting them. The global need for behavioral health support has climbed significantly.   People in distress cannot afford to remain on wait lists.  Yet therapists, social workers and counselors are burned out, frustrated by the lack of advancement opportunities and leaving the field, further exacerbating the behavioral healthcare capacity shortage.  We look at the big picture, take realistic measures, and work towards systemic changes targeting the root of these problems.

Families with school-age children struggle to maintain social and emotional health, and our already-strained behavioral healthcare and education systems cannot adequately support children and their parents. curaJOY unites know-how’s from licensed professionals in the fields of psychology, behavior analysis and education, and then uses human-supervised AI/Machine Learning to deliver personalized help when families need them.

Kid-centric, Relationship–Focused

Families’ emotional wellness is interconnected, but not all families have the resources to develop children’s social-emotional skills. Most current solutions work only with students or parents in silo, missing the chance to heal toxic interaction patterns and prevent Adverse Childhood Events.​

24/7 Support for Real Improvements

Weekly therapy sessions can’t create transformations. curaJOY facilitates offline social interactions and the amount of real-life practice necessary for mastering skills like impulse control, problem-solving, making friends, and bouncing back from hardships.  Whether you’re looking to build skills, improve mood, or gain productivity, our continuous practice and reinforcements model brings lasting improvements.

Advancing the Accessibility, Effectiveness and Equity of Social and Behavioral Health Support

There is a critical shortage of behavioral and mental health professionals worldwide.  The pipeline to better service reimbursement and more licensed professions is longer than families–and our society–can afford. curaJOY uses technology for good to create a safety net for families worldwide with our digital behavioral program, MyCuraJOY.

Effective programs are practical and co-designed with the communities it serves.  People should have a voice in creating solutions that help their own communities.
