8: Olivia talks to Miricyl about making accessing mental health support easier
In this episode, we welcome Alex Conway and Caitlin Jilbert from Miricyl. Miricyl is developing an online platform that enables young people to access mental health support and resources with ease. Their ultimate vision is for the world to be free from mental illness and the stigma attached. They aim to fund research and campaign for infants, children, young people, and their families affected by mental illness. We first hear Olivia Gorvett speak to Alex Conway about his role as CEO and Caitlin Jilbert on her transition from intern to heading up Miricyl’s Marketing. Later in the episode, we hear more about the inspiration behind Miricyl, how it works, the development process, and the exciting official launch on July 5th (save the date!).
