Adults looking for a simple yet effective approach to fighting anxiety, stress, or depression, may want to check out Litesprite, a startup that designs smartphone games that tackle chronic mental health problems. The story was covered on KING5.com by Renay San Miguel.
Litesprite and its founders, Swatee Surve and Neil Mc Farland, are Graduates of the Seattle Founder Institute.
The prototype of Litesprite's first game, SinaSprite, incorporated evidence-based treatment methods into the gameplay, becoming a first-of-its-kind self-help tool for mental health and winning praise from doctors in the process. The player's progress is tracked, allowing clinicians and caregivers to access the information and address the stress symptoms of the player. Litesprite is currently seeking angel investors and partners, and hopes to create a suite of games that focus on various other health conditions.
