Who are we?
Tried it? Why not share it with a friend!
Flow is brain stimulation and behaviour therapy. Simple!
Okay so that might need some explaining. Basically...
The Flow headset delivers (very) gentle electrical signals to the brain. It activates brain cells in an area in the front of the brain – more specifically, on the left side of your brain.
The technology used is called transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and should not be confused with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) or ‘electroshock’ therapy. Usually, tDCS feels like a slight tickle on your forehead.
The stimulation restores brain activity in your frontal lobe and decreases your depressive symptoms.
For most people, the changes in brain function are noticeable after only 3 weeks. You’ll receive 5 stimulation sessions per week during the first 3 weeks and later, you will have 1-2 sessions per week for as long as you like. Each session is 30 minutes.
Flow believe that unlocking the science of the brain is key to understanding mental health.
Flow was co-founded by Daniel Mansson and Erik Rehn. Together, they have a huge-but-simple goal: To use science and technology to help as many people with depression as possible.
In his work as a clinical psychologist, Daniel has treated patients with a variety of conditions, including anxiety and depression. As a neuroscientist, Erik has worked on projects in artificial general intelligence in Silicon Valley.
Daniel and Erik met in 2012, when they both worked at KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm. With combined backgrounds in clinical psychology, computer networks, computational neuroscience and electrical engineering, they formed an interesting team.
In January 2016, they launched Flow. And the rest was history.

How Mental's Perspective
When you think of depression treatment, you think of two things: pills and therapy
For decades, talking therapies and anti-depressants have been the go-to solution for depression. The problem is, these don't work for everyone. And the major problem with that, is if they don't work for you, it can feel completely hopeless.
Flow know this. They know that depression treatment needs to enter the 21st century if we are truly going to make a difference to peoples' lives.
