Our Story

The Founders

Neolth was founded by Katherine and Lukas Grill. Katherine began her career in psychiatric care as an Art Therapist. She went on to get her MA Biological Psychology and PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience. She worked at a pediatric hospital, where she conducted NIH research with teens and young adults. She also was a university professor and the co-founder of a community-based health program for youth. She recognized the need to improve implementation work, so care could be more affordable, convenient, and impactful.  

Katherine and Lukas moved to the Bay Area with the goal of using technology to as way to help as many people as possible. After exploring the digital health field, they discovered there were limited solutions that provided neuroscience-informed and

youth-oriented care. Through combining Katherine’s expertise in clinical care and neuroscience with Lukas’s knowledge of engineering and business, Neolth was formed.

The Company

Our mission is to help students manage the stress and pressure they face by empowering them to develop resiliency skills. A remote company, Neolth has team members in California, Oregon, New York and Austria.

Neolth offers cutting-edge mental health support that’s affordable, effective and fun. We’re doing so in partnership with our community of Student Ambassadors at over 170 schools. Step into something bigger: join us on our mission of improving student mental health!

The Science

Each person is unique, and that’s reflected by differences in our brains. This concept, called neurodiversity, explains why people respond to diverse treatment techniques. So while mindfulness may be your go-to, creative art or guided imagery works better for someone else.


Neolth optimizes treatment matching by using neuroscience to determine the most effective behavioral technique. Our precision mental health approach helps you find the right treatment technique(s) in just minutes. After a brief personalization survey, you're matched with relaxation and SEL practices tailored to your needs.

The Approach

At Neolth, we work in partnership with youth to create a digital platform that best suits their needs. Our program has been co-developed with over 250 students who have worked with us as interns, advisors or ambassadors. We host regular design sessions with youth, as part of our commitment to constantly improve.
