mettleAI is on a mission to revolutionize mental health treatment and allow people to treat it in the same way they treat their physical health. The company is working with and partnered with several top healthcare organizations and educational institutions including Canadian Mental Health Association, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, and more. We are a portfolio company at MaRS, accepted to several incubators, and were recently selected as a Techcrunch Top Pick Company in the Biotech + Healthtech category.

mettleAI leverages ML/AI to predict substance abuse relapse and overall mental health deterioration before it happens using a mobile application for patients undergoing outpatient mental health treatment. mettleAI quantifies subjective risk identifiers (stress, social isolation, etc.) through passive data collected from a phone and moves mental health treatment from an “art” and reactive care to a more science-based and proactive form. Through mettleAI’s real-time insights collected from digital footprints, healthcare providers are enabled to make better clinical judgments and personalized treatment plans to ultimately improve patient outcomes.

We’re a lean startup and unfortunately with this landscape, this is currently an unpaid internship or with a milestone based compensation. We can do paid full-time/part-time if we are a good fit.
