Innovating mental healthcare through social entrepreneurship and transdisciplinary approaches
Featured Speaker: Ryan Stoll, founder of COMPASS for Courage

Despite anxiety being the most prevalent mental health concern in children and teens, nearly 80% of anxious youth don’t receive any help that works due to the lack of accessible and effective tools for communities. COMPASS for Courage seeks to solve this problem by re-packaging the best available evidence-based tools for reducing youth anxiety into a consumer-focused solution, blending science, design, marketing, and social entrepreneurship. Ryan Stoll, ASU PhD Candidate, will discuss the journey moving COMPASS from lab to community, highlighting both the potential and challenges of transdisciplinary approaches in health innovation and lasting social change.

Ryan D. Stoll is a PhD candidate in clinical psychology, co-creator of COMPASS for Courage, and founder of Obeo Wellbeing, a social impact business committed to improving the public health impact of mental health research by re-packaging the science into effective and sustainable tools for people, organizations, and communities. COMPASS for Courage is Obeo’s first product.
