See DCU start-up recognised as mental health innovator by World Economic Forum (

“Opa Mind, an Irish mental health start-up developed with the help of Dublin City University (DCU) researchers, has been recognised as a top innovator by the World Economic Forum.

Founded in 2020 by Martin Lawlor, Opa Mind is a mobile platform that provides support to individuals through a voice diary feature that aims to reduce stigmas surrounding mental health.

The technology was developed in Insight, the Science Foundation Ireland research centre for data analytics, at DCU. It analyses a user’s voice collected privately and sends back a range of reflective metrics and indicators across emotional states and vocal biomarkers.”
