Maro is launching a platform called Maro for Schools that helps the schools screen and identify students suffering from anxiety and depression with parental consent.
The app uses digital modules and AI-powered bots to help youth tackle mental health-related issues. Previously, Maro introduced its first product, Maro for Parents, in 2020.
The Tennessee-based startup founded by Kenzie Butera Davis is aimed at assisting families in navigating through challenging conversations about mental health, diversity, empathy, and puberty.

The new platform called Maro for Schools was initially supposed to launch in 2020, however, the shutdown of schools during the Covid-19 pandemic halted the plans. The app will now be launched next week.
It aims to provide teachers with accessible lesson plans for mental health, sex education, drug abuse, etc. It also provides the option of streamlining communication between teachers and counselors.
Once a teacher detects any mental health-related issue in the student, they can connect to a counselor for further guidance while keeping the parents in the loop.
The app plans will be accessible through an annual subscription fee which has not been disclosed yet.
