(“MYnd”) (OTCQB:MYAN), which provides a unique set of reference data and analytic tools for clinicians to assist in determining the right therapeutic medication for individuals with mental health disorders, presented to the American Legion PTSD/TBI Committee on October 8, 2016.
As the nation’s largest veteran service organization, The American Legion advocates for effective PTSD and mental health treatments. In a recently released military trial, MYnd Analytics’ proprietary PEER process showed a reduction in suicidality by more than 75% when physicians followed PEER recommendations, 2.5 times greater adherence by patients to PEER-recommended therapy, and three times higher medication efficacy than physicians treating as usual without the benefit of PEER.
