Startups Like HabitAware Show Tech is Taking Mental Health Seriously

January 02, 2019

Aneela Idnani Kumar, CMO of HabitAware, is open about her decades-long struggle with trichotillomania – a disorder that, for her, resulted in the irresistible urge to pull out her eyebrows and eyelashes. She and her husband, Sameer Kumar, developed a device called Keen to track and alert her to the repetitive behavior.

HabitAware had a big year: The Minneapolis-based startup won the Minnesota Cup and was one of Time Magazine’s best inventions of 2018. Idnani Kumar said she’s encouraged to see so many more startups focused on helping people access quality care and attain mental healthiness, like she is.
