Seth joins me today to discuss Oui Therapeutics, they built out their research based solution and they're in trials with adults, including the military. We handle a tough topic today around suicide and suicide prevention. If you or anyone you know are having suicidal thoughts, you can call 988, which is the new national crisis hotline or you can text the Crisis Text Hotline at 741741. We speak about mental health, we speak about behavioral health, we think about digital therapeutics, how you transition from academics to business and his journey.

“It helps retrain them in how they identify when they're at risk, how they prevent being at risk, and what to do when they are at risk. Not unlike what happens, you know, when people have cardiac conditions, they learn about how to identify when things are going badly and when to go to the doctor.”  - Seth Feuerstein
