9 Days to Go!

Why your app matters: 

The U.S, with five percent of the world’s population, consumes 65 percent of the world’s psychotropic drugs, tranquilizers, and mood enhancers; currently there are over 30 million people suffering from depression in the U.S. And the World Health Organization predicts that by 2030, depression will be the number one health issue worldwide.
