Our story

Hyka Story

A unifying problem becomes a unifying goal.

Everyone on the Hyka team has been impacted by mental health problems in one way or another. We have seen family members, friends, colleagues go through today’s broken, fragmented system. Some of us have felt the fatal outcome of someone not getting the help they need.

Hyka

Those who have joined us along the way bring their own mental health stories, experiences, and journeys. Including the exact problem we are working to solve. A shared passion for this problem has turned into a bonding force. A force that constantly brings us together and inspires others to join with one goal: Fix the fragmented world of mental health care.

All about people

We are a team of innovators, psychiatrists, engineers, and clinical experts passionate about improving access to next-generation mental health therapies.

Born out of the Harvard Innovation Labs, Hyka is a unique blend of different perspectives.
