Prevail is solving a problem that is affecting the lives of thousands. We all have a friend, neighbor, relative, or colleague who has experienced a mental health condition. Most people - over half in America - do nothing about it. Thanks to technology we make the care more accessible and affordable. With actual clinical trials and national pilots under our belt, along with national delivery to the largest integrated health system, in addition to a signed pilot with the nation's largest insurer, Prevail is the spot to be! Join a passionate team motivating each other to take the next jump. Beers at the end of the day on Friday to celebrate the victories throughout the week, along with great leadership of former Navy pilot and University of Chicago MBA, Rich Gengler, as our CEO.
