If the $3.7 trillion global wellness industry is any indication, more and more people are finding themselves inspired to take a serious look at their own mental health and wellness. Local health authorities are certainly encouraging Austinites to do so — citing a mental health crisis in Travis County in need of new solutions.

Fortunately, the tech community has listened. In recent years, startups dedicated to the health of Austinites and people around the world have sprung up across the city. Here’s how a few of these companies are using tech to make a difference.
