Do you go into those problem domains intending to make a lot of money?

I don't and I'm skeptical of folks that do. There's likely money to be made here, but probably not by tech people.

In the mental health space, tech is and should be an after thought. It's necessary, but it's like the plumbing in the Google campus; it's a big deal when it fails, but no one would consider Google a plumbing business.

That's why every MH tech application is either:

  • A small hyper-specific utility like a journal, a todo app, a timer, etc
  • A Zocdoc competitor
  • A communication platform that connects people with therapists, or a support group, or whatever

Tech always plays either a small role or tech isn't the main focus.
