We talked to Awake Labs last spring, learning about their work helping adults who have an intellectual disability manage their daily stresses. Their mobile and wearable apps measure stress in real-time and send an alert for more timely, effective mental health support.
We were thrilled to hear the impact that being a CSI member was having on what Awake Labs was doing. Chief Product Officer Paul Fijal told us:
Being a CSI member has been a blessing for Awake Labs. Everyone on our team loves to be a part of this vibrant and badass community of changemakers. It is motivating to come to work when you’re surrounded by people who work every day to change the world!
Awake Labs has just celebrated their fifth anniversary, and launched an exciting partnership with Community Living Ontario. CLC Ontario is a non-profit that advocates for people with an intellectual disability to be fully included in of community life.
In celebration of this partnership, Awake Labs is giving away Samsung Galaxy Watches and one-year licenses of their technology.
