“We create technology for psychology

to help bring peace of mind to the world.”


Cloud 9’s vision is a world with greater access to affordable mental healthcare, along with reduced stigma surrounding mental disorders. Greater utilization of mental healthcare is a preventative solution to problems :such as senseless violence, broken families, lost productivity and costly chronic physical illnesses linked to mental disorders: and has the opportunity to heal these societal issues in time. This can lead to healthier communities, workplaces, homes, personal relationships, parenting and future generations.


Cloud 9 deeply cares about making mental healthcare approachable, affordable and available to all.  Our team; like most everyone else, has felt the pain and tragedy of untreated mental illness among our friends, families and communities. We believe the best path to mentally healthy populations begins by delivering innovative solutions and support to leading behavioral health providers and organizations. Quality caregivers are a desperately needed resource and they need technological solutions. Their mission is aligned with our mission.
