wayForward (aka PsyInnovations Inc) was established in New York, USA with a mission to make mental healthcare accessible to everyone, globally! We use our psychology and technology expertise to build products that help people in their everyday life situations from better performance at work or school to better relationships and beyond. Our products help to overcome some of the biggest barriers to providing mental healthcare like stigma, lack of access and cost.

We strive to achieve our vision by building products that people love to use. We do that by putting our users first and applying engineering, product management and UX / UI design best practices in iterative fashion. We collaborate across the globe as cross functional agile teams with people who are motivated to learn and grow outside of their comfort zones.
