We're Closegap.

We envision a future in which mental health is no longer a privilege; a future where all children are able to learn and realize the positive life outcomes they deserve. Starting with high-impact coping strategies and emotional regulation, we activate the brilliance within every child.

Values

We’re BOLD.

We’re going to remove barriers to mental health for systemically marginalized populations. We’re going to use technology to track and analyze kids’ emotions and behaviors. We’re going to use gameplay and immersive environments to fulfill real human needs.

We’re GOOFY.

We bring energy, joy and goofiness to everything we do.

We’re THOUGHTFUL.

We like to use our brains. What we’re building breaks disciplines and sits on the boundary lines of childhood mental health, education, gaming and the role of technology in healthy human development - this requires that we think about things. A lot. And, we do. We’re aware, deliberate and purposeful.

We’re CURIOUS.

Wait…but why?
