About Mira Therapeutics

The idea of Mira Therapeutics started when we witnessed our friends actively experiencing the effects of trauma. As we started working on it, we soon realized there were many more people who were suffering or had suffered from it. Those were friends, colleagues, people we have known for a long time, people with lives similar to ours. It became obvious that post-traumatic stress affects many people, and unlike popular culture tells us, it is far from being limited to military veterans. Abuse, domestic violence, childhood neglect, sexual assault, natural disasters, are all examples of traumatic events that may lead to post-traumatic stress symptoms.

 

Thankfully, there exist some therapies to treat the effects of trauma and PTSD. However, crises and symptoms can be triggered anytime, outside therapy sessions. The starting point for Mira was to develop a solution to deal with these crises, on your own, when they occur, and to understand them so more can be done about it, both through self-management and through therapy optimization.

 

The Mira app is on a journey of improvement and development just as those with trauma symptoms are recovering and improving. We are re-imagining trauma recovery, and there is more to come. For now, use the Mira App and stay in touch!
