These slides were presented at the August 2023 meeting of the KC Digital Drive Health Innovation Team. Raise is disrupting the paradigms in the mental health space examining how technology plays a catalyzing role. Raise brings leading edge technologies, designed to be embedded and integrated into existing communication platforms and apps to analyze normal conversations to detect people in need of mental health services, connecting them to those professionals who can change their lives. Raise is an “Impact-as-a-service” organization bringing technologies to organizations committed to or impacted by mental health and driven to find those slipping through the cracks, suffering in silence and in need of impactful mental health support. Craig Mason is the Co-founder and CEO of Raise and a longtime Kansas City innovation-focused architect in the intersection of healthcare and technology. As a former executive at Cerner and C-suite innovation leader for a large Omaha based federal health technology company, he has spent more than a decade working on many of the most complex solutions and clients in the US and Global healthcare ecosystem. Through his own personal journey and those of many of his family, friends and peers, de-stigmatizing and improving mental health is his passion.
