Therapy & Mental Health

A recent Blue Cross Blue Shield Association study found diagnoses for depression rose 33 percent in America from 2013 to 2016, mostly among adolescents and millennials.

Sadly, fewer than half of the 1 in 5 Americans who are experiencing mental health problems seek treatment. Mental health provider shortages are causing people to wait weeks or months for an office visit.

High treatment cost, lack of access and perceived social stigma are among the reasons. Often people are simply unable to find suitable, affordable care at all.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this demographic in need: MyCocun.

The MyCocun web application links young adults to licensed and vetted mental health providers. For people struggling with mental health, it is a safe place to talk. The app provides online treatment programs specifically targeted to the needs of adolescents and millennials.

The target demographic is young adults, which the completed app design will reflect.

All providers on the app are specialized in specific areas including stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, and eating disorders.

Counselors of MyCucun have clinical work experience, have passed state-certified licensing exams and undergone extensive recruiting requirements and background checks before becoming a network provider.

This platform can help eliminate the main barriers to care: cost, access, and stigma.

Online counseling can provide a convenient, confidential, highly effective alternative to traditional office-based counseling programs. We wanted to communicate this to users through the app and have no barriers in the user-experience.

Chop Dawg has also built a custom administrator backend for MyCocun so they can effectively manage their business and provide a convenient channel for its network of mental health providers. It was especially important that Chop Dawg built the backend website application with the same precision as the user-facing app.

" is basically Batman. I just throw up the bat signal and before I know it, they're at my back door. has been a tremendous help in developing and fleshing out the product so far. I’ve never developed software before, so I needed a partner that would guide me through the process and push back on bad ideas or potential time wastes. Unlike other agencies I considered, provided just that. I also felt that the team bought into the mission behind my platform and is driven like I am to solve a social problem, which I appreciated. They've been wonderful to work with."

Some of the technology that we supported when we created the MyCocun app

We built the application as a responsive website application using PHP with Laravel, MySQL, React, HTML5, and CSS3. For the administrator and server-side, we programmed the app in PHP with Laravel. The frontend website was created using WordPress, HTML5, and CSS3.
