What is SochaBlue?
SochaBlue is an app that combines cognitive neuroscience and machine learning to optimise the economic and life outcomes of people at risk of mental health issues and suicide.
SochaBlue uses machine learning to analyse responses to customised questions. This enhances an individual’s development and delivers better life outcomes.
SochaBlue is a collaborative venture between BDI Health and Socos Learning.
How SochaBlue works
SochaBlue sends one simple question and one activity each day to a mobile phone
SochaBlue uses the answer to design a daily activity
Daily activities promote resilience, problem solving, creativity, collaboration, conflict resolution and motivation
What SochaBlue does not do
It does not treat mental illness or replace traditional medicine.
What powers SochaBlue?
SochaBlue is powered by an AI engine developed for the Socos MuseBot and is currently being used to improve learning outcomes in children.
How will SochaBlue help the user
SochaBlue has two main avenues to deliver benefit – Smart City/Community (community prosperity) and Smart Workforce (HR).
Smart City/Community uses a catchment approach and aims to reduce the impact of mental illness at the community level. The outcome is a reduction in the social impacts that high levels of mental illness generate (domestic violence, crime, drug use, homelessness etc). This preventative approach will significantly reduce to cost burden on hospitals and front line institutions dealing with mental health.
Smart Workforce is designed to improve the employability and skill set of a person seeking employment or currently employment. It can also be used by recruitment and employment agencies, including NDIS suppliers, to improve the employability and skill set of candidates looking for employment; even candidates with prior and/or existing mental health issues.
