Revery, the US start-up that wants to change how mental health is accessed and delivered by adopting a more playful approach, just raised $2 million in funding to bring its app out of beta mode and launch it in the US this year.
The app will be combing cognitive behavioural therapy with mobile gaming concepts to help users overcome their insomnia.
Revery is being tested in beta right now and it’s already attracted the interest of notable investors like Sequoia Capital and GGV Capital.
Although the app won’t be limited to sleep, it’s where Revery wants to get started, because sleep affects so much of our daily lives.
Traditionally, most sleeping apps focus on mediation and practicing relaxation techniques. That’s where Revery differs.
Although it doesn’t want to give away too much information ahead of the launch of its apps, the idea is to draw from casual mobile games and design short game-style sessions for users to help them return to sleep.
It’s both about establishing positive habits and then reinforcing those habits.
