Total Brain is a neuroscience-based mental health and fitness platform based in San Francisco. It was founded in 2000 by leading neuroscientist, Dr. Evian Gordon, MD, Ph.D. Our mission is to improve mental health and fitness through brain-based self-awareness and training.
It took us 18 years of R&D to build the tools to measure the 12 brain capacities that define mental health, and screen for the risk of 7 mental health conditions. We are scientists, technologists, and strategists committed to creating awareness of the real impact of individual’s life choices.
Total Brain is used by large consumer groups and Fortune 500 companies who benefit from lower mental healthcare costs, improved productivity and critical insights on what drives their organizations.
